Sheep to Shawl Program Returns to History Center

Sheep to Shawl Day, May 13. Sheep to Shawl Day, May 13.

BALLSTON SPA — The long-running interactive “Sheep to Shawl” program at Brookside Museum returns to the Saratoga County History Center on May 13 from 1 – 4 p.m. 

Sheep, lambs, farmers, herders, and shearers, including the famous Fred the Shearer, and the Rock Day Spinning Guild will assemble on Brookside Museum’s front lawn to demonstrate every facet of sheep raising, shearing, and spinning to produce the wool clothing that was so ubiquitous in early America. 

Sheep to Shawl is a hands-on, family-friendly event.  Activities include petting the sheep, meeting farmers, and participating in demonstrations. 

Brookside Museum is located at 21 Fairground Ave., Ballston Spa. A well-preserved 1792 mansion, Brookside houses the records, collections, and exhibits of the Saratoga County History Center.  Visit
