Sat, July 13 - Natural Dyeing   - Demonstration -

Our world is filled with color, and in the hands of a skilled Dyer, fibers can be made into any color of the rainbow!

 

Today we will dye yarns into lovely colors using natural dye materials.  Fiber can be dyed "in the fleece", as yarn or as cloth.

 

Treating the fiber - or the dyepot - with different mordants can "brighten" or "sadden"  the color, or even change the color all together!

 

Demonstration outside the Weaver's Cabin 11 am - 3 pm

  Sat, Aug 17 - Flax to Linen
     - Demonstration - 

Did you know that lovely linen cloth is made naturally from the Flax plant, which looks like straw?  

 Fine linen cloth has been produced from the Flax plant for thousands of years .  The many labor intensive steps required to extract the lovely fiber from the stem are demonstrated here today, using time honored tools and skills.        

   -- Outside the Weaver's Cabin 11 am - 3 pm  --

Sat Sept 14 - Crank it up!                  The Amazing Sock Knitting Machine Demo!

If you have ever knitted a pair of socks, you know they take time.  Consider having to knit ALL the socks needed by your family!

As long ago at the late 16th century, a mechanical knitting machine was developed to ease this arduous task.


 

 Cabin Volunteer Diane McCrea has restored an antique sock knitting machine to working order.  Come see this amazing machine in action.  Turn the crank and watch the  process to create beautiful socks.
