A Day with Fiber Friends

Saturday we spent the day at the Van Raalte Farm.


It was Heritage History Day or some such event, and we went to demonstrate fiber arts. Unfortunately for the planners of the event, there was plenty of competition from nearby events and plenty of rain to keep folks away.


But we had a large tent that kept the worst of the rain off, and because there were several of us demonstrating different crafts, we enjoyed the conversation and our crafts.

A quilter:

Spinners, using the wheel...

...and the drop spindle.


A weaver using a rigid heddle loom:


Basket-makers:


All with a background of lovely, lovely music, provided by these two:



Despite the lack of visitors and the abundance of rain, it was a pleasant day.

  1. Yes, the chilly and the rainy did show up! But it sounds like it ended up being fun in an unexpected way.

  2. Looks like a fun day, sometimes the rain is needed to have time to talk to the fellow crafters:)
