Sheep to Shawl Competition – PFF would like to host a Sheep to Shawl competition, to be held over May 26 & 27. We are interested in having this competition be an enjoyable, fun-filled activity that is also educational for those who come to see the festival. We would like teams of 4 to 5 members to process a fleece from carding and spinning, through to weaving, knitting or some finishing technique to create a useful object. The winning team will receive a one-time Pagosa Hot Springs pass for each person registered for the full time of the event. Judges will be several vendors, to be selected at the time of the festival. Teams can elect to use their own fleece or one can be provided. The only processing allowed prior to the festival is scouring/cleaning; all stages from carding onward are to be done at the festival. Teams need to register with Linda Smith by e-mail to workshopinfo@pagosafiberfestival.com, smjam9@aol.com, or by calling 970-884-0502. Registration is $3 per person. We hope you will join in on the fun!
