Spin/Knit/Weave/Quilt Weekend @ Slater Mill
Sunday, October 9
Are you making your plans for Columbus Day weekend? It’s hard to understand how October is upon us and it’s time to start thinking like it’s fall for real!
If your plans involve a long weekend “staycation” rather than a trip out of town, maybe you’ll want to include an afternoon over at the Slater Mill in your plans! On Sunday, October 9 from 12-4p.m. the fiber guilds who meet at Slater Mill will be gathering to talk crafts, show off projects and techniques, and generally have a fun and educational fiber-filled afternoon.
Members of the Hook & Needle Guild will be there, as well as members of the Spinners Guild, the Industrial Revolution Guild, and the Weaving Guild.
There are some special guests and presentations planned for the day too!
Deborah Newton and our own designer extraordinaire Helen Bingham will be there with some of their own designs. Fresh Purls will have a booth too, in case you absolutely need yarn RIGHT AWAY for something you've seen.
And Pam Weeks, the curator of the New England Quilt Museum, will give a presentation at 1:00 p.m. about how the abundance of cotton print fabric changed the craft of quilting in the first half of the 19th century.
This event is open to all who have any interest in the crafts and Slater Mill. Include any portion of this afternoon in your long weekend plans!
