40th Annual Black Sheep Gathering

wool gatheringEUGENE, Ore. — The Lane County Fairgrounds was busy Sunday as hundreds gathered for the Black Sheep Gathering. It’s the event’s 40th year.

Coordinators say the gathering is dedicated to showing people what they can do with colored wool, since the traditional wool used is white.

There were different work shops offered, as well as numerous vendors at this unique event.

“We’re completely dedicated to wool so that makes us really unique. We’ve also been around for 40 years; I think the other shows have been around about 41 years out on the East Coast but really, we’re the only one that large and that much dedicated to wool on the West Coast,” said Laura Todd, coordinator of the Black Sheep Gathering.

Organizers say Sunday is the last day, but they’re looking forward to year 41 next summer.
