The Virtual Sheep to Shawl has nine teams registered as of June 26 with only 4 days until registration closes on July 1.
To follow some of the activity on Facebook, there is a private group called Virtual Sheep to Shawl 2021 (VHWSG) that I believe you can view even if you are not a member of the group.
Teams are from Victoria, Gabriola Island, Courtenay and Vancouver. Team names are as follows:
Covid Baaa Damned
Sheep Shifters (Courtenay)
Mighty Mycelium Magic Makers (Gabriola)
It’s a Wrap
Vancouver Shawl-ympics (Vancouver
We missed the Saanich Fair Sheep to Shawl demonstration last year, so the idea of a virtual Sheep to Shawl was born! This event is supported by the VHWSG but is open to all spinners on Vancouver Island, Lower Mainland and the Islands in between.
A “Sheep to Shawl” is an event at which spinners begin with a newly shorn and skirted fleece and end up with a finished shawl! Loads of fun to work with a team – together or apart. A Visual Record of the project is a new part of the fun. Registration is limited to 10 teams. Registration opens April 1, ends July 1st. Shawls must be received by the judges by August 31st, 2021. This will be a summer project, beginning in May when the sheep are shorn to be completed by August 31.
Two spots left!
We have now posted some of the prizes that will be awarded. Read on for more details and required registration.
