Today the women in the fiber arts guild got together for a little dress up and fiber spinning at Fort Sisseton. The fort opened up today and had sleigh rides and crafts for the family and then volunteers dressed up in 1800s attire and reenacted what it would be like in those days. The guild took our spinning wheels and spun yarn ALL DAY LONG. I am pretty tired of spinning to tell you the truth. There were lots of kiddos and they were all so intrigued how the wheels worked and they all had to kno–what are you making with the yarn? It was great. Here are some pics:

this is how it looked before:
