Brookside Museum Hosts Sheep to Shawl Community Day May 15

BALLSTON SPA — The long-running interactive “Sheep to Shawl” program at Brookside Museum returns at the Saratoga County History Center 1-4 p.m. on May 15. 

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 an interactive, family-friendly event.  Young and the young-at-heart will have fun petting the sheep, meeting farmers, and participating in demonstrations.  A terrific opportunity to enjoy the spring weather, learn about Saratoga County’s agricultural past, and enjoy some quality family time. 

Brookside Museum is located at 6 Charlton St. Ballston Spa. For more information, go to: www.brooksidemuseum.org.
