green grass + bouncing lambs = Farm Family Photo time again.


Last year I offered Farm Family Photo Shoots at Windrush Farm and we had so much fun that we are doing it again this year.

paigegreenAllisonWoofter01312012-025 Sessions are 45 minutes and include 10 high resolution digital files of your choice. Additional images will be available for purchase.


We recommend wearing clothes & shoes you don’t mind getting dirty.


And bringing a colorful blanket to spread out in the grass.


While we will do our best to take photos with baby animals, they are baby animals, so we can not guarantee they will always cooperate.


But we can guarantee that we’ll have lots of fun on the farm…And you’ll have lots of cute photos to prove it.


Farm Family Photo Sessions Dates:

March 30th-April 2nd

April 6th-April 9th

Feeding lambs
Exploring around the pond
Reading under the pine trees
Digging with vintage trucks
Toddling on the Toddler Adventure Trail

Seven Christmas Gifts…

Make your own felted and knitted Christmas gifts at Windrush Farm.

(2263 Chileno Valley Rd, Petaluma, CA 94952)

This year, make a plethora of Christmas gifts for
your loved ones. Hand-made and home-made
gifts are so much more meaningful than store
bought. They are easy on the pocket-book and
people will use them over and over again and
save them for years to come.

We like to take you on a journey of a variety of
techniques, from wet and dry (needle) felting to
sewing to knitting, using a variety of materials
(some re-used or re-purposed) to get ingenious
and wonderful gifts that are great for Christmas
or the year around.

You will go away with several finished projects,
such as a felted bead necklace and earrings,
scrunchies made from dyed sheep curls/locks and
several jewelry pins from felted beads and curls,
and more ideas than you will be able to realize.

Class is Sunday Oct. 24th 1 pm – 4:30 pm

Bring your own knitting needles, crochet
hook sewing needles, needle felting kit.
(Tea and cookies provided)

Class Fee:

Classes are $120. This includes a $20 materials fee. (for returning students
class is $100 including $20 materials fee)

Class Description:

You will begin on a knit project, either a
triangular scarf, a cowl, fingerless mits or tube
socks. Easy patterns to finish in a short period of
time. And we will have kits and many samples
for other projects.

Class Schedule:

1:00- 2:30 Wet felted beads, buttons, snakes,
soaps, collars and other decorations for your knit
and jewelry projects.

2:45 – 3:00 Break and farm animal walk

3:00 – 4:30 create jewelry with your felted beads
and buttons, sew flower pins and dry felt collars.
You will also start on your knit project.

We will have jewelry findings, glass and
other beads, felting materials, scrunchies,
copper and knit wire. And we will have many
samples of projects you can make. Bring your
camera to take pictures of these samples so
you can remember and make them after class.
