A Wool Gathering

As part of Preston County's Lights-On Afterschool Night, the Aurora School held A Wool Gathering. Area residents provided visitors (those willing to brave the weather to visit the outside tent) with demonstrations of wool processing.

There was shearing,

picking and carding,

Spinning and knitting

The students were also given a wonderful bookmark:"Ewe" can't beat a good book! which featured a sheep with real wool locks.
