Spinning on the Great Wheel

July 6 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

How did colonists in early New England transform the wool from a fluffy sheep in their pasture to a shirt on their own back? Rebecca Manthey will discuss the many steps in this process of making cloth and demonstrate spinning on the Great Wheel at the historic Chapman-Hall House on July 6th from 12-4 pm. Come learn how the wheel works, why it was sometimes called a “walking wheel,” and the importance of this tool in our history. Free and open to the public!
