In order to welcome the
In order to welcome the glorious re-emergence, the giving of life, impending abundance and forthcoming superfluous energetic demands, we invite you to join us in our annual roasting of the sheep, drinking of beverages and reveling in the company of peers.
We here at Stitchdown believe strongly in the power of gathering, and we believe gatherings are most efficaciously executed with copious doses of fire, meat, beverages and labor.
All are welcome! All ages welcome! Only humans please! If you must bring animals, please ensure they are in or under control, as we have neighbors not far and livestock on the farm.
We’ll provide lamb, beer, bread, kuub, and a keg of Abracadabra’s finest cold brew coffee to keep the engine purring.
We send a hearty call provide what you are inspired to bring. If musician, bring your instruments and rock out. If baker, bring a 17 layered cake decorated in the image of spring. If gamer, bring your group games. If have any other cool identity or hobby, bring your other cool and delicious things to share with everyone!
Rain or shine or snow. Camping available.
