Spring Shearing Day

New Glarus

See the sheep sheared of their winter coats - sheep shearing on the hour at noon, 1 pm, and 2 pm each day. Program on 'Mini Sheep to Shawl' - to show what happens to the wool...steps such as skirting, carding, spinning, knitting, weaving and felting. Saturday - Marshall Spinners Guild, Sunday - Bishop Hill Fiber Arts Guild. Both days - "hands on" with Michelle Martin of Purple Moon Fibers. On display - a calendar quilt - created by Pat Ottaway using recycled wool fabric with needlefelting and stitchery to symbolize each month.
