Colonial Sheep-Shearing

Sunday, April 29

1 PM - 5 PM

Early settlers welcomed opportunities like sheep-shearing to gather for work and celebration. See 18th Century interpreters shear sheep, card wool and card and spin it into thread.  Try the simple craft of weaving on a tape loom.  Enjoy lively tunes from the 1700's and sweet aromas from the kitchen hearth.
