Demonstration: Come watch members of our guild practice their craft at the Lorain County Fair.

Come watch as spinners and weavers demonstrate the process
of taking fleece from sheep and spinning and weaving it into a
beautiful shawl.

Sheep to Shawl Demonstration Goals:
• To demonstrate the art of spinning and producing a project through weaving,
crocheting or knitting

carding, combing, spinning, plying and then weaving, crocheting or knitting an item.
Guidelines:
• Teams will consist of up to 6 members.
• Teams must have a name and team appearance (eg. same color t-shirt)
• Fleece will be donated. Teams will need to wash fleece and bring the clean fleece to the
fair.
• Fleece may be dyed by team.
• Demonstration will begin at 11:00 am and end at 3:00 pm. Projects will be put on
display and certificate of participation will be awarded.
