About this Event:
Before the mass manufacturing of textiles, the processing of raw materials into fabric was much more labor intensive. After the fibers are gathered and prepared, they need to be spun into thread. (Think Sleeping Beautyís spinning wheel.) Spinning fibers into a strong and uniform thread or yarn requires skill, practice and patience. The Spinners will be spinning their stuff at Hillís Academy on November 11, 2012 from 1-4 pm. Stop by, sit and chit chat awhile as you watch the rhythmic, almost hypnotizing process of turning rough fiber material into sleek strands. The Spinners are looking forward to sharing their passion with you!
