Sheep to Shawl, a popular family festival that explores how our ancestors made their clothing from wool, will be hosted by the Kirkman House Museum on October 1, from 10 am to 2 pm.
Children will love seeing the sheep.Visitors will also enjoy demonstrations of wool carding, dyeing, spinning and weaving. Lace making and knitting on a vintage sock machine will also be demonstrated.
Handmade items from local and regional vendors will be available for purchase. They will include a wide variety of woolen and fifiber clothing, raw and ready to spin fiber, hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns, and spinning and weaving equipment.
