Hands-on museum offering Saturday programs and weekday workshops May-August.
At the Home Textile Tool Museum, we reconstruct textile fabrication, an important part of American farm life, as it was in the mid-1800s through demonstrations, displays, and visitor participation.
All aspects of home textile production are shown and/or demonstrated, including flax and wool spinning, plain and overshot weaving, flax growing and preparation, keeping sheep, and natural dyeing.
The Home Textile Tool Museum is like no other museum. Not only can you see old spinning wheels, looms, and tools of early America being used as they were 150 years ago, you can touch, and even try using them yourself (under safe and friendly supervision).
