Michigan’s Wine and Wool Festival

Local wine, handcrafted yarns and fibers, and a beautiful Michigan summer day—what could be better? In the summer of 2010, Sandhill Crane Vineyards and LYS The Dropped Stitch hosted the first Wine and Wool Festival in Jackson, Michigan. The event, which now occurs each summer and winter, continues to be a favorite for yarn and fiber lovers in Michigan and beyond.

More than twenty-five vendors that include fiber farms, indie dyers, and felters are heading to the vineyard this Saturday, July 30. Emily Wohlscheid of Bricolage Studios has participated as a vendor at nearly every Wine and Wool event since 2012. “It is always exciting to be in a different environment when vending at a show, and the opportunity to team up with a local business to support one another makes it that much better. The Sandhill Crane Vineyards is always incredibly welcoming and accommodating to all of the vendors and bring in a great crowd.” Learn more about Emily’s work and travel on the Bricolage Studios Facebook page.

Bricolage Studios now offers Plant Packs. Each pack includes several different fiber bases dyed in gorgeous palette. Yum! Photo: Emily Wohlscheid.

Admission to Wine and Wool is free. The vineyards’ café will be open and wine tasting is $5. Sandhill Crane Vineyards creates wines and meads using only Michigan-grown fruit. All of the wines are made at the vineyard using its own grapes, apples, and pears. These are combined with other local grapes, fruits, honey, and maple syrup to create award-winning wines. Learn more about the event, vendors, and location on Facebook.
