Sheep and Wool Fayre at Spitalfields City Farm

On Sunday 15th I am doing a stall at the Spitalfields City Farm Sheep and Wool Fayre 12.00-5.00…Poster for Sheep and Wool Fayre 15 MaySounds like a fun event.

  • They will be shearing their rare breed sheep
  • You can have a go at using their wool by learning how it is spun into yarn, then knitted or crocheted into garments. Make felt  (someone else is doing this although I will be demonstrating on my stall) and see how the yarn is woven on a table loom to make cloth.
  • Children can take part in the activities as well as making toy sheep and badges, get their faces painted like a sheep and the best dressed sheep or farmer will win a prize on the day!
  •  You can also enter the “guess the weight of the fleece competition” and the now famous “Spitalfields Sheep Stakes” is taking place this year in a slightly different format.
  • Also students from the London College of Fashion will be displaying an assortment of their knitted creations.
  •  There will be refreshments, live music and loads of craft stalls (including me) and all their other friendly animals to say hello to.

Hope to see you there….!
