Sheep to Shawl Contest returns!

In a demonstration of shawl construction, three teams will compete to see who will finish first, beginning with wool, spinning it into yarn, then weaving a shawl from that yarn.

Observe the process on Saturday, August 3.

First step in the contest–spin enough yarn to keep the weaver busy!
Keep spinning even while she’s weaving.
Admire the finished shawl
