Thank you for attending Sheep-to-Shawl this past weekend! We work hard to make this a fun (and educational!) event, and we're happy to hear you enjoyed it. We hope to see you again at our other events at Philipsburg Manor this year!

We didn't get to do the tour but just walking around the manor was a calming experience. The candlelight lanterns and the old fences around the pond were very scenic.
