An Interactive Celebration (and Demonstration) of All Things Fiber!

While our sheep are being shorn, Hill-Stead Museum will welcome fiber artists and vendors demonstrating Skirting, Carding, Spinning, Weaving, Knitting, Crocheting, Felting and more. There will be free hayrides to and from the barns, food vendors, and storytellers.

  • Peggy Hart—the author of Wool: Unraveling a Story of American Artisans will be speaking on wool’s colorful and surprisingly epic history in America.
  • Hartford storyteller Liz Gruber will be weaving tales of fiber.

Learn what it takes to create something “from sheep to shawl.”

It’s a celebration—Join us!
