Flax Breaking and Basket Making
How was (clothing) fabric made centuries ago? Barbara will demonstrate flax breaking, drop spindles and spinning
wheel use as done in the 18th century
and then explain how these fibers were
spun and woven into cloth for clothing.
Try your hand at spinning!
Baskets were an everyday item used
widely during the American Revolution.
Join Sharon to try your hand at this lost art.
Take your basket home with you too!
