Explore the world of natural fibers through a variety of demonstrations, mini-exhibits, and hands-on activities. See museum interpreters, local quilting clubs, spinning clubs and guilds demonstrate how flax becomes linen, how wool and cotton are spun on various spinning wheels, and how textiles are produced on looms or through needle arts. You will never think of your clothes in the same way again!
Hands-on activities include carding wool, spinning wool on a drop spindle, weaving, felting (making a felt ball), kool-aid yarn dyeing and quilting. Demonstrations include rope making, flax to linen, felting, knitting, crocheting, and spinning on the “great wheel."
