BOARDMAN – Three Sheep Gallery & Workshop, which opened in 2016, offers a venue where customers can enjoy weaving and fiber-arts on our looms, or learn something new through individual instruction.
Pre-pandemic saw weavers expressing themselves through the cloth they created, inspiring and encouraging each another.
As the year progressed, Three Sheep settled into its new normal.
“Private shopping and weaving times were offered, small groups were kept to their ‘safe bubbles’, weavers explored portable looms enabling them to weave at home,” said owner Linda Shevel.
This year Three Sheep launched the new “A Joy Weaving” website, an online presence for one-of-a-kind hand-woven and hand-knit clothing and accessories.
Three Sheep’s emails continued, no longer highlighting upcoming group classes, but bringing pretty pictures of new projects, an opportunity to connect with someone, and a bit of positivity each week.
Shevel participated in the YWCA 38th Annual Women Artists: A Celebration. Her artwork, Intertwined 03 was awarded the YWCA Mission Award.
“Intertwined 03 is a mixed media weaving focused on reducing & reusing. Sewing patterns were spun into yarn and formed the base and inspiration for this piece,” Shevel said.
“Three Sheep is looking forward to celebrating it’s 5 –year anniversary this spring and continuing to weave with friends old and new.”
