Scotchtown Fiber Festival

Apr 22, 2023

10:00 am — 4:00 pm

Bring your family and join us as we celebrate spring, the shearing of the sheep, and fiber production at Scotchtown! Our program is growing and this year we have so much more to enjoy!

Sheep shearer Dave from Delly’s Delights Farms will be here answering all your questions about our sheep, the process of shearing, and the important role of preparing the fleece for dyeing and spinning.

Members from Clothos Handspinners guild, an educational non-profit organization located in Richmond, Virginia, will be on-site demonstrating the process of wool production including carding, spinning, and dyeing.

Other activities to enjoy throughout the day!
* Sheepdog herding demonstrations pending
* Open House Tours
* Children’s activities area
* Demonstrations in the hearth kitchen featuring our spring garden
* Market area with local crafters and vendors
* Food trucks
The open-house tour and fiber festival programs are both included at $10 for students and Preservation Virginia members and $15 for General Admission. Children 6 and under are free.
Unfortunately, because of the nature of the animals being brought to this event and demonstrating, leashed dogs (with the exception of ADA registered dogs) are not going to be permitted on the grounds.
