Sheep to Shawl Contest
sponsored by Yarn Tree Studio
Start with a beautiful washed fleece.
Card or comb the fiber.
Competition will be fierce as teams work under pressure, against potential perils such as scraped knuckles, broken tension bands, backaches and curious onlookers with complex questions. The first shawl to cross the finish line will score major points. Judges will also award points for teamwork and craftsmanship. Cash prizes will be given.
Complete the Rules of Engagement, put together a team of fiber pals and practice practice practice.
Sheep to Shawl demonstrates to the public how fibers were traditionally prepared and how clothing, home furnishings and accessories were produced in the past. The goal is that such events will promote greater interest in all aspects of creating fabric and emphasize the historical importance of the fiber arts.
