St. Distaff's Day Celebration - Once again, spinners from throughout our local region will gather to spin some yarn and enjoy each others' company. Traditionally, the day was celebrated to mark the end of the holiday season and the return to work for all spinners. Spinners of all abilities are welcome to bring a wheel and enjoy the afternoon. The public is welcome to come visit and chat with spinners or just tour the museum. Admission is free.


Saturday 25 March, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

A Flax Wheel Affair! Flax spinners from around the region will gather to share information on their individual wheels and on spining flax. Flax is a long, plant fiber requiring a different technique than spinning wool, cotton or other shorter fibers. Most modern flax spinners do so on antique wheels.

Sign up for the event on Facebook or by sending an email.

The public is welcome. Admission is free.
