Meadows of Dan, VA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This docent at the Mabry Mill was demonstrating the spinning of carded sheep's wool into yarn, quite a fascinating process. Wish there were a category for historical images!

Thanks, Pat! This was a park volunteer or employee, not sure which, but other than lacking the period costume, everything else was authentic.

I went to a harvest festival at one of the Indian missions a couple of years ago and saw a young lady in period costume using a spinning wheel. That was nice! This reminds me. Nice memory, too.

I'm sure such skills can be learned, Julia -- have you tried your local community colleges? Thank you for your interest in this series!

For a short film of activities on this site, including a segment showing this same docent spinning, please look at my comments under the photo Mabry Mill.

I agree with the desire for some new
categories including "Historical".

I have one wool and one flax wheel, but
unfortunately I apparently just don't have
the knack...can't make it work.

All our sheep and no spinning. Sigh.

Glad you like this, Kat! There were other demonstrations going on, but I didn't shoot all of them.

Neat shot! I would love to have the colorful
basket in front! That alone, filled with the
bright yarns, is beautiful!
