See our latest Class list on the Community page. Call 413-397-3680 for more information and to register.
We have regional and Fairtrade yarns, needles, notions, accessories, and local food/gift items. Over 20 fiber artists and fiber farmers supply handwoven scarves, knitwear, felted items, and local roving and yarn. Stop in to take a look! We always have Gift Certificates and Gift Basket options (you can make a custom one choosing from local artists’ teacups, tea, tea “nest” strainers, & cookies or chocolates (seasonally available), as well as yarn, patterns, books, bags, and gifty notions). If you’re touring the area, we are just south of Historic Deerfield and the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory. Local fiber enthusiasts, check out the Community page to see the schedule for classes and events.

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!
