Where I’ll be: Centennial @ Washington’s Crossing

The Wool Merchant’s Daughter will present a display entitled, “Every Revolution of the Wheel, A Spinning Wheel Showcase” during the NJ Centennial at Washington’s Crossing.

The display will feature over two dozen antique & modern spinning wheels from the 1700s to present day. The collection includes wheels from America, Canada, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, India, Ireland, Germany’s Black Forest & Lithuania. Many of the wheels are functioning & area spinners will be on hand to demonstrate the wheels & teach interested visitors. In addition, visitors will have ongoing opportunities to learn about washing, picking, carding, spinning “in the grease” (spinning wool directly from a raw sheep fleece) & all other aspects of transforming wool into yarn & fabric.
