Shuttles, Spindle and Flyer Wheels: Hand spinning and Weaving in the 21st Century

The Essex County Hand Spinners Guild will demonstrate the magical art of spinning fibers into yarn on hand spindles and spinning wheels, some antique or traditional in appearance, and some contemporary that have a modern look. Weavers will also demonstrate how cloth is made on a variety of looms. Visitors will also be invited to try their hands at spinning and weaving.
