Our wonderful competitions!
Fleece to Scarf
Sunday from 9 am - 11:30 pm
A team of one weaver and two spinners is all you need! Select a
washed but uncarded fleece (lock structure should be intact) of
sheep's wool, alpaca, llama, bunny, goat...any natural animal fiber
will do. Design your scarf, warp your loom, practice hand carding,
spinning and weaving and see if you can get it completed in two
and 1/2 hours. Creativity of your team's name, theme, costumes
and signage will give you a head start with the judges! Please be
sure to read through the specifications and judging points system.
Scarves will be auctioned off with proceeds to each team. Prize
money and other awards will also be presented. There is a Team
registration fee of $10.00
Registrations up to September 19th will be accepted!
