Sheep Shearing Sunday at Highlands Springs Resorts!
Highland Springs Shearing Event
Volunteers wanted!

Next Sunday is the Shearing Event at Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley.  This is such a fun event -- for the entire family!!  We will have a booth there and will be teaching classes.

We need a few helpers for teaching.  We are teaching spinning, weaving, and knitting.  We have a lead teacher for each of these events but we need a couple of helpers for each to make the experience a bit better.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Molly at handsonknittingcenter@gmail.com.  

If you know how to crochet, we are still looking for a crochet teacher for the day!!  Please let me know!
