First stop - a demo on the Lucet and the Spindle from the wonderful ladies from Colonial PA Plantation.
Next stop... The Handwork Studio
This wonderful organization is dedicated to teaching children needle arts. I was so thrilled to learn and chat about what they are doing for the community by passing on the handmade, needle arts tradition. Very exciting stuff. They are located in several areas so please stop by their website and learn more.
Sheep and a bit of shearing (very gently done).
I was so impressed with the ladies who brought the sheep to this event. Many times I've seen people be a little rough with their animals and I was relieved to see the loving care these animals were receiving.
Here's a wee one learning to get used to a harness...
