Demonstrate at Gilbert Stuart Birthplace & Museum
Members of the Rhode Island Spinners Guild are invited to demonstrate on the Opening Day at the Gilbert Stuart Birthplace & Museum. Last year a group of us organized a mini- fleece to scarf demo. Many people stopped to watch and ask questions and the guild was well-received by the attendees. This year's event will feature the operation of the Hammond Gristmill for the first time in 100 years. There will be fisheries biologists on hand to explain the herring migration and the fish ladder on the property, tours, the nature trail will be open, Woodworkers Guild of RI will be selling items and jonnycakes for sale!! The date of the event will be Sunday, May 6 between 1pm and 4pm. (Set-up will probably happen earlier). Period costume is welcome but not required. For more details contact David or Richard.
