Fun at RI Fiber Fest May 15, 2010

Coggeshall Farm in Bristol, RI is a lovely place to host this annual event. A living history museum, the sites provides interpreters who dress up in period costume and discuss shearing sheep, processing flax into linen, and dyeing fiber with natural materials. They specialize in Gulf Coast sheep, which were commonplace in New England during Colonial times.
