Auction of Handspun Handwoven Shawls

Have you ever watched something develop right before your very eyes that was so beautiful it would forever remind you of spring days and gentle animals? Come to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival’s Sheep-to-Shawl Contest on Sunday starting at 8 a.m.  Sheep breeders, shearers, spinners and weavers from up and down the Mid-Atlantic region come together once a year to entertain and intoxicate you with their skills.  The end result is a special shawl that you can bid on, own, or give to a special friend or family member.  These unique garments are auctioned at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Come and share the excitement of the Competition and Auction!

Thank you!

Another Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival has come and gone, and we could not have done without all of you – Festival goers, volunteers, Festival Committee members, shepherds, and participants in so many activities, competitions and demonstrations! It is amazing to see this come together with all categories of participants contributing to its success. We tried some new things this year, and had a little bad weather to deal with, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding, support, and good cheer. Thanks to everyone for participating in our 44th celebration of all things sheep & wool! We are already thinking about how to do even better next year!

In Peace,

Gwen Handler, Chairman, Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Lee Langstaff, President, Maryland Sheep Breeders Association
