It appears that the NYS Sheep and Wool festival has many Workshops and people come from all over the country to attend October 18-21, 2012 at the fairgrounds.. and there doesn’t appear to be enough local hotel/motel//B&B options. I wonder if the townspeople (readers of this blog) know about http://couchsurfing.org. If not, perhaps you can host some interesting out-of-towner fiber lovers (knitters, etc) for a few days by finding them there. It’s a match making site for travelers and hosts.
Many of you have spare rooms and perhaps hosted a reporter or 2 during the Clinton Marriage thing… Well this website is a well-organized method of hosting and being hosted during your own travels… Etiquette and protocol are all on the website. There’s a Mid-Hudson Valley group…. http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=17220 Thanks for helping host visitors to Rhinebeck and beyond! I know that right now, people are trying to book places to stay and have to go 30+ miles away. This is another solution.
Hope it works out for everyone.
Thank You, David
