Sheep will take centre stage Saturday, May 14, at the Surrey Museum, for the annual Sheep to Shawl Competition.

From 10:30-4 p.m., three local weaving guilds will face off to card wool, spin it into yarn and weave it into shawls, all within four hours.

Activities for visitors are to include sheep-shearing demonstrations (1-2:30 p.m.) and opportunities to try one of the museum’s spinning wheels and weave a bookmark on an inkle loom.

There will also be several  sheep on site outdoors for families to enjoy and learn about.

The winning guild will be announced at 4 p.m.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710-56A Ave. For more information, call 604-592-6956.  www.surrey.ca/heritage
