Spinning Wheel Workshop-Special Announcements!

The workshop has been moved to SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, due to inclement weather!  The times have not changed nor has the venue.  This workshop will be well worth the wait!

Also, we will have two different types of wheels for sale, parlor spinning wheels and a walking wheel, as well as yarn winders!  Please be aware that the various spinning wheels and yarn winders on display and for sale have been reconstructed and donated by members Everett Rance, Bill Montgomery, and Barry Edstene to be sold to raise funds in support of the Henry County Historical Society.  Some parts have been newly manufactured to make the units working tools. No claim is made that they are historical artifacts, although we have made every effort to make them historically accurate.

As always, we thank you for your support!
