Does your group or club have an interest in textiles past or present? Does your history curriculum include the Middle Ages, Colonial Life, or the Industrial Revolution?

Beginning and Intermediate Spinning seminars, specific subjects like, "Cotton", "Flax", or "Dyeing", and discussions of Natural Fibers and their properties are among the subjects that can be covered.
