We are open until 6 today (Sat.). We will be closed tomorrow (Sun.) due to the impending storm! Stay safe & warm and keep on knitting! (crafting)
Happy January and 2019! May we all find new creative outlets in the New Year – perhaps a new knitting technique or pattern, a new community group, a new way to share our talents – through volunteering, gift giving, teaching…. Be healthy and happy and make new friends.
We are here at Sheep & Shawl to help you with your knitting, yarn, or pattern questions. We love to see what you have created with our yarn. All of our staff are experienced knitters, some are weavers and spinners, and we give you personal attention. We also showcase local yarns and local fiber artists. Let us know if there’s a class you would like to take here that we aren’t already offering. Stay in touch!
We host free Wednesday night Crafts Nites from 6 – 8pm. The “regulars” at Crafts Nite are very welcoming to newcomers. There’s always room for more and we have fun!

We have regional and Fairtrade yarns, needles, notions, accessories, and local food/gift items. Nearly 50 fiber artists and fiber farmers supply handwoven scarves, rugs, blankets, knitwear, felted items, pottery yarn bowls & mugs, and local roving and yarn. Stop in to take a look! We always have Gift Certificates and make-your-own Gift Baskets. If you’re touring the area, we are just south of Historic Deerfield and the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory.

The mission of Sheep & Shawl is to create a market for natural fiber yarns, promoting local and regional fiber farmers and fiber artists, and to create a local community of knitters and fiber artists.
I am so excited to be in this beautiful space within the vibrant Pioneer Valley, where “buy local” is a way of life. I hope you’ll visit my website again and be looking for updates!
