CRAFTS – fiber arts

We carry local and regional crafts – mostly fiber arts (wearable scarves, shawls, hats and homewares like blankets, table runners, and hot pads) plus yarns from local farms or hand-dyed by local artists.  You’ll also find some interesting gift basket items from local foods to notecards to fiber jewelry.

Because many of our artists are weavers, and shop owner Liz is Lynn Foster Save the Polar Bears Twill Awarda weaver as well, Sheep & Shawl was happy to further support fiber arts in the community by sponsoring an award at the Weavers of Western Mass fiber show “Heddles and Treadles” at Eastworks in Easthampton in October., 2014.  The award for the “Best use of Twill” went to Lynn Foster for her “Save the Polar Bears.”

Here are some of the artists we are currently featuring:
