BOARDMAN — Three Sheep Gallery & Workshop introduced two- and three-day weaving retreats in 2022, attracting participants from beyond the region.
The studio at 6010 Market St. is a destination that brings business to nearby restaurants and hotels, says owner Linda Shevel.
In the past year, Three Sheep introduced many groups, mothers and daughters, grandparents and children, and friends to weaving with its no-pressure approach. Weavers find it to be a satisfying shared experience that builds confidence and happiness, Shevel says.
Three Sheep reaches out to the community through its crafting and group presentations. This spring, it will work with the Western Reserve Spinners and Weavers Guild in the art of clothing design, using hand-woven cloth.
In May, Shevel will deliver the keynote address at the Michigan League of Handweavers conference.
