Try your hand with a vintage sock-making machine. Wash, comb, spin, and weave wool. Vendors offer a variety of natural fibers, yarn, and equipment. To register for specific specialist-led workshops on weaving, felting, dyeing and color matching, and more, please visit www.fiberrevival.com or contact kcorcoran@historicnewengland.org. There is an additional fee for workshop participation. The house is open for tour from noon to 3:00 p.m. Refreshments are available for purchase.
