About Us

Thank you for participating in Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. We appreciate your support! The Fiber arts and textiles are not just art Рthey are the foundation of our textile industry’s history. Help us keep them alive!

The Teaching Museum for the Fiber Arts and Textiles is sponsored by the Y.O.U.T.H. Program, Inc. and is in York County PA. This organization became a non-profit in 2003 and works with youth, animals, the fiber arts, and communities. It teaches youth every aspect of operating a Student-Run-Business. (which is our gift shop, field shows, and now Etzy). We are located on an 11- acre farmstead and have Border Leicester cross sheep, alpacas, horses, and others. The youth care for them, help with shearing, preparing the fleeces for roving and hand-crafted items, learn the fiber arts, demonstrate, and assist with sales. The Teaching Museum was established in 2016 and is open to the community and tourists. We also have classes for boys/girls and adults.

Our mission is to provide educational and hands-on-involvement of the fiber arts and textiles while keeping its history alive. If you would like to learn more about us, share information with us, or make a donation, please visit our website: www.teachingmuseum.org!

If you are ever in the area, please feel free to drop in to visit.
