Our spinning guild gets asked on occasion to spin at local events. Imagine my happiness when we were asked to spin right in my own town of Tiverton at the Chace Cory House back on June 7th (I know - I'm a bit behind. It's been a busy week).
Some people brought their dogs, These people brought their pig. He even did tricks for piggie treats. I was impressed.
Inside the house there are antiques such as spinning wheels, etc. This yarn swift caught my eye. It's made entirely out of whale bone. Under normal circumstances it is locked up because of the value but they took it out for the day for us to admire.
The ties are made of silk. It was such a work of art.
This quilt was in pristine condition - considering the fact that it was crafted in 1899.
They loved that we were willing to come and demonstrate - like it's such a chore for us! They even invited us back in September. I'm looking forward to it.
How was your weekend?
