Heritage Day at the Farmers’ Institute

On Sunday July 8th a group of Guild members took their tools and raw materials to the Farmers Institute to show the public how the ancient crafts of spinning and weaving are still practiced and enjoyed. A table loom provided absorbing entertainment for visitors

of all ages. Some of the younger ones were fascinated by drop spindles and asked to learn how they worked. In about 15 minutes they were able to make yarn to take home.
