Linsey-Woolsey: Open House
May 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
In the 1840s, many rural families constructed their own fabrics to sew their clothing. The McKinnis family may have grown flax to make linen, and they sheared their sheep to get wool. The family will explain how wool and flax is processed to make yarn and linen. It’s quite a process—we’re lucky we don’t have to do this today! You are also welcome to bring and work on your knitting or crocheting projects and enjoy a cup of tea.
All ages welcome. Free; registration not required.
