Budding Creek Farm

Patricia Sanville has been involved in the fiber world since the age of 4, when she found her grandmother’s stack of granny squares and learned how to crochet. Sanville’s other grandmother shared her love of farming with her. Combining these two passions since moving to Maryland 10 years ago, Sanville now raises a flock of wool sheep on her farm, Budding Creak Farm, where she teaches multiple fiber arts classes to both children and adults (including fiber preparation, spinning, dyeing, felting, knitting, and crocheting). She also gives lectures on a variety of topics, holds monthly spin and knit nights at her farm, and advises others in the sheep and fiber community.

Patricia will be speaking at the Maryland Fairs
