Junior Fleece-to-Shawl Demonstration

Join us in welcoming the Spinsters fiber team from the Fiber Arts 1 and 2 classes at the Avon Grove Charter School in West Grove, Chester County, Pennsylvania. Starting with an unwashed fleece, they will spin yarn and weave a shawl all within a few hours.

The Spinsters made their debut appearance at the Pennsylvania State Farm show this past January. They brought home a first and fourth place and have started a tradition for their school. Here at the Festival, they will only be competing against the clock, but maybe we can get them, and a few other junior teams, to enter our full-blown Sheep-to-Shawl Competition on Sunday next year!
