Junior Historians enjoy Fiber Workshop at the Museum

On Saturday, October 29th, Ms. Samantha Graves with Hoosac School, visited the museum to work with the Junior Historians on everything fiber! The students worked with different fiber types including cotton, flax, alpaca, and sheep and learned about how fiber is processed to yarn and then knitted or woven into fabrics. During the afternoon event, each student had an opportunity to utilize the drum carder, skein winder, drop spindle, the spinning wheel, and a table-top loom. This is a lesson that will “loom” large for our budding historians!
