Watson Farm Sheep Shearing

A great day was had by all at Watson Farm last weekend. The farm was teaming with fellow fleece lovers and families strolling through the farm enjoying the baby chicks ,lambs and sheep shearing. I was very happy to note that they now own two Jacob sheep.

Several guild members Carol R, Beth,Renay, Marva, Marie, and Sandy and myself demonstrated spinning with wheels and spindles. Beth demonstrated carding. Another woman demonstrated spinning flax. Jean had a table full of felted figures on display.

Check out the video of me trying to decide which fleece to buy.Thankfully I resisted the purchase; I have several fleeces already as you may know!

REMINDER: This Saturday,May 19th is the RI Sheep and Wool Festival at Coggeshall Farm in Bristol RI.
