Join the Newburyport Spinners Guild and Historic New England for a day-long exploration of fiber arts, featuring demonstrations of needle felting, hand-spinning, weaving, and alpaca and sheep husbandry, colonial rug making, and knitting. 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 email@example.com. 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. Also visit the Vintage Baseball Triple-Header at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm on August 13.
