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 from our resident sheep. 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. There is an additional fee for workshop participation. Tours of the 1690 manor house are offered from noon to 3 PM and lunch is available for purchase.
