The sheep get their yearly "haircuts" this weekend. Farmers shear the sheep, and costumed historians demonstrate the entire wool textile process, from scouring and carding the wool to spinning, and then knitting the hand-spun wool yarn. Visitors can even try their skill at hand-carding the wool.
See sheep herding demonstrations. Join us in knitting (or crocheting) scarves for deployed soldiers. >>

This was a great article written by Dr. Anne Paris. I love the ideas and tools she gives to use. I have all three of the Empathy Way books and can't wait to read them to my Grandkids so that they can become Caring Empathetic Children and later teens, which is so important, especially in this world we live in. I can't wait to see what Dr. Paris has for us next!
