Costume and/or Geek-Related Events where “Nerf Guns and Bobbins” hopes to make an appearance
Spoutwood Farms May Day Fairie Festival – April 30-May 1 2016 — 4255 Pierceville Road, Glen Rock, Pennsylvania
I look forward to this weekend every year, as do all the people I go with. We camp, we dress up, we have a lot of fun, and we ALWAYS stop at a wonderful ice cream place located at the halfway point between the farm and our camping grounds in York, PA.
Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival – May 7 & 8, 2016 – Howard County Fairgrounds, West Friendship, Maryland
This is the first year I will be able to attend Maryland Sheep and Wool (it’s usually on the same weekend as Fairie Fest) and I am THRILLED! After learning to spin last year, I have really fallen in love with all the beautiful types of fleece out there. I’ll be at the festival on Saturday, along with members of the Stitch ‘n Time volunteer textile club I help out with. I’m sure you’ll be able to find us holding down a spot on the lawn.
Escape Velocity – July 1-3, 2016 – Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland
I will be volunteering with the Museum of Science Fiction’s inaugural convention, Escape Velocity. Honestly, I am already incredibly excited about this. We attended the volunteer orientation at the end of February, and it looks to be a great event.
This is a “maybe” again this year. My new job includes some travel and, this far out, it’s a little difficult to determine whether I’ll actually be able to attend or not.
