ewe to you poster amended-1smallThe Hallamshire Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers are holding a special fundraising event and exhibition for Heeley City Farm.

Using traditional techniques they will turn a sheep’s fleece into a unique throw to be raffled off to raise money for the Farm. Come and see them carding (combing) the wool, spinning it into yarn and knitting the throw over two days. You can even have a go yourself!

Held in Reception Classroom near the pond.

Suitable for all the family – once you’ve watched the spinning and other techniques you can go and see the cute piglets, lambs and goat kids –  several have been born over the last two weeks!  Free to see – we will be selling raffle tickets. Ring 0114 2451322 for more details
