Sheep to Shawl

Sheep to Shawl 2020 Cancelled

Due to COVID-19, Sheep to Shawl 2020 has been cancelled. This long-cherished event draws over 1,000 visitors to our 5-acre site to experience the full spectrum of wool fiber processing. With those conditions in mind, the health and safety of our community is our primary concern as we continue to follow the CDC guidelines in restricting large gatherings. We are excited to offer engaging educational opportunities in a new way. Be sure to check out our social distancing learning resources online: https://www.willametteheritage.org/social-distancing-learning-resources/

As our museum and venue spaces remain closed, we continue to look for support from our community. Your donations directly connect generations as we navigate this difficult time in history. Please consider investing in preserving and interpreting our community’s history at: https://www.willametteheritage.org/support-us/

Thank you.

First held in 1985, our Sheep to Shawl festival is a classic family event, offering the opportunity to experience the full spectrum of wool fiber processing, from the shearing of animals—sheep, of course, but also alpacas, llamas, and the occasional rabbit—to the production of beautiful lace at the hands of expert fiber artists. Weaving, spinning, knitting, and rug-hooking are on display, as are blacksmith demonstrations in our operating forge.

You don’t want to miss the 2020 Sheep to Shawl! Bring the whole family! Admission is free for everyone.
