Stitch 'n Time is a volunteer based textiles club where members enjoy learning about the cultivation of wool and cotton, and colonial textiles.
Volunteers meet on the second Saturday of every month from 1-4 pm, in addition to completing at-home volunteer projects between meetings. Each meeting is themed, and will focus on a particular task or step in the processing of wool from the foundation’s Hog Island sheep flock.
Hog Island sheep are a critically endangered breed of sheep withless than 200 sheep registered in the US each year. Products produced by the Stitch 'n Time club are sold to support the foundation’s Heritage breed preservation program.
Volunteers are expected to regularly attend monthly meetings and contribute to fiber processing to the best of their abilities.
