Sharing prairie crafts: CrossThreads Fiber Guild (South Dakota)

The CrossThreads Fiber Guild (South Dakota) demonstrated spinning for over three hundred children during this year's Agricultural Day. Two members helped kids learn to card wool and explained the tools used to prepare fiber for spinning, while other members demonstrated wheel and drop-spindle spinning. Guild members also participated in the Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House Play by presenting small, take-home crafts representing the prairie heritage Laura would have experienced, including spinning, weaving, and quilting.
