People spinning at the Westford Museum
The Museum was packed with spinners and their wheels.

Last Sunday, 30 spinners from around the region gathered at the Westford Museum to celebrate St. Distaff Day, a traditional day of spinning following the holidays. The event was social, with participants and guests enjoying each others' company. A silent auction was held with fiber and fiber-related books and objects to raise money for the Museum.

The event was hosted by the Westford Spinners, who meet at the Museum 7-9 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month.
