Come join us to experience the making of a sweater. We will be practicing for speed and consistency in the making of a sweater out of raw wool, straight off the sheep. It is a competition that is International and for the last 3 years our team is the only entry from the U S. The actual event will be at the Bonita Museum on April 25th. contributions are welcome and all proceeds go to Cancer research. What happens, shearer starts shearing wool is handed to spinners, spinners start spinning, yarn is passed to knitters who proceed to knit as fast as possible to complete the sweater. The team of 9 then sends their time into the competition leaders for evaluation.
