Learn to Spin 101

Spinning fibers into yarn is an ancient trade. Now you can learn how to spin in this new workshop taught by Susan Cayton, one of Fort Meigs' long-time volunteers.

Participants will learn how to prepare fibers, use a wooden drop spindle, and try several different makes of spinning wheels. All will have the opportunity to create a piece of their own and take it home! Cost includes all required materials and supplies. Workshop size is limited to the first 10 people registered.

Our most exposed blockhouse had the upper part knocked off, & nearly demolished.
