'From Sheep to Sweater' at Centralia Library

The Centralia Timberland Library will be teaming up Sept. 26 with local spinners and fiber artists to present a program for children, grades one through six, on how sheep clothing - wool - becomes people clothing.

Taking place from 2 to 3:30 p.m., children can learn where wool and other fibers come from, and how fibers are processed to be made into clothing and other products. Members of the Ewesful Spinners Guild will demonstrate carding, spinning and knitting; kids can take turns at four activity stations, handling various fibers and trying some of the techniques.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Centralia Timberland Library. The library is located at 110 S. Silver St. For information, call (360) 736-0183 or visit www.TRL.org.
