Making Holiday Memories

December 5, 2010, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Join us for a quiet prelude to the holiday season. Enjoy a concert by young musicians from our community in the Victorian parlor, bedecked with evergreens and ornaments. Craft a special item for friends or family. Take time to enjoy a cup of mulled cider by the warmth of the 1790 hearth and make a shopping excursion to the Country Store for unique holiday gifts.

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.
