Overview:

Stitch 'n Time is a volunteer based textiles club where members enjoy learning about the cultivation of wool and cotton and colonial textiles. Each meeting is themed and will focus on a particular task or setp in the processing of wool from the Hog Island sheep flock at National Colonial Farm. The club meets the second Saturday of every month.

Hog Island sheep are a critically endangered breed of sheep with less than 200 sheep registered in the US each year. Products produced by the Stitch 'n Time club are sold to support the Accokeek Foundation's Heritage breed preservation program. Contact: [email protected]

No previous experience is needed. We accept both experienced and novice fiber artists interested in: sewing, knitting, crochet, spinning, dyeing, weaving, and felting. The club has some equipment and notions available for check out (ex. wheels, spindles, crochet hooks, knitting needles, hand carders, wool combs, etc.), but encourages volunteers with their own to bring them along or use them at home.
