Spinning Wheels Demonstration

See historic and modern spinning wheels in action with Cecelia Hicks and Valerie Gaddis. Watch as they spin exotic fibers of camel, alpaca, and angora using a modern spinning wheel, and spin wool fleece into yarn using a restored antique spinning wheel. All ages are welcome to explore the different types of fiber, try using a drop spindle, and practice carding wool!

This demonstration will be ongoing from 1pm to 4pm.  You may drop by anytime during those hours, and stay as long as you like.

Free. No registration required.
