The Fleece to Shawl demonstration takes raw fleece and transforms it into a fabulous shawl. Gabrielle Menn demonstrates the process of carding, spinning, plying, and weaving. Gabrielle will answer questions while working on the shawl. The finished shawl will be auctioned off with 50% of the proceeds going back to AOA.
