1. On Saturday (May 14), three local weaving guilds will face off in a competition to card wool, spin it into yarn and weave it into beautiful shawls, all within four hours. Yes, it’s time again for the Sheep to Shawl event at Surrey Museum. Several sheep will be there for families to enjoy and learn about.
