Sheep to Shawl

Saturday, May 11, 2019

10am – 4pm

FREE FOR ALL AGES!

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 2018 Sheep to Shawl! Bring the whole family! Admission is free for everyone.
