    During Wool Days the Old Sturbridge Village sheep get their annual “hair cuts” and historians demonstrate how wool is processed – from shearing, scouring, and carding to dyeing, spinning, and weaving (in other words, from sheep to shirt – or chemise). Try your hand and test your history IQ at our textile exhibit. Memorial Day is also our official kick-off to summer activities (period games, 1830s base ball, French & English tug-of-war contests) and our weekend to roll out the Old Sturbridge Village stagecoach and re-launch our boat ride on the Quinebaug River.
