About the Farm & Studio:
Welcome to the home of Serendipity Farm & Studio in Suffolk, Virginia! The
farm is home to a much smaller flock of wonderful wool sheep than we used
to have, but as sheep age, so do the shepherds.
Our donkey, Jubilee, stands guard to keep predators at bay and welcome visitors.
Shearing Day is always a special treat for the wonderful volunteers who come to help round up the sheep and skirt their fleeces. When the work is done, we feed everybody who has helped. If you are interested in sharing our Shearing Day experience, please give us a call to put you on the list, so we know how many folks to expect.
Fleeces are offered at a special price on that day only, too! It's always a day of education for newcomers and we all sleep like logs that night!
The Studio at Serendipity Farm is open to the public on an APPOINTMENT ONLY basis. Private or group instruction can be arranged by contacting us to discuss available programs. If you are planning to visit in the Tidewater Virginia area, just let us know as soon as possible.
We can plan 3-5 day workshops for out-of-towners as long as we know you are coming! To see a listing of classes or workshop suggestions, please click HERE.
The retail section of the Studio is also open by appointment only. All we need is a call or email from you so we can be sure to be here when you are.
We are vendors at many weekend fiber festivals and shows and the person who cares for our animals and property cannot help with the retail shop when we are away. So, if you don't get an answer to your call or email instantly, please know we are working somewhere and will answer when we can.
We are authorized dealers for looms, spinning wheels and lots of other fiber tools from the following manufacturers:
- Schacht Spindle Company
- Glimakra, USA.
- Louet Sales
- Lendrum Wheels
- Leclerc Looms
- Harrisville Designs
- Strauch Equipment
- And others
Serendipity Farm's retail book selection is quite extensive, and current. We carry all of the latest publications for weaving, spinning and knitting. Well, not ALL knitting selections, but quite a few, since many of our spinning customers are also knitters! If we don't have a title in stock, please let us know what you are looking for and we will try to get it for you.
