Don’t miss sheep getting their haircuts! Stop by the Miller-Cory House Museum on Sunday, April 30, 2017, 1–4pm, for the annual Sheep to Shawl Festival. The process of sheep shearing will be demonstrated by a master shearer using hand shears as was done in early America. The process of turning wool into cloth will continue with demonstrations of spinning and weaving.

Visitors may also watch the performance of 18th-century farm tasks such as butter churning and making the drink known as switchel. Children can enjoy various games and crafts. And there will be an herb sale and a bake sale. Free refreshments.
