Make a Ceramic Bowl with holed lid. Once finished, use your bowl to hold your yarn and keep it clean while you work. You may get dirty at this workshop. Wear old clothes or clothes you don’t mind getting dirty as well as bringing a big towel and an apron (optional.) Scrubbing sponges are needed too. Bring tools to make some fun patterns on your bowl too. Your tools for patterns could be things like buttons, crochet needles, spools, paint rolls, or anything else you can think of that may make a fun design.


FARM DAY

Peinhardt Farm Day (Public Day) is where the farm is open to the public for 1 day. There are many vendors with farm related items. Many people demonstrating how things were done on a farm in the past.,/p>

Cullman Fiber Guild provides people demonstrating different techniques we’ve been learning. These include knitting, crocheting, weaving, spinning, basket making, and more.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!

Public Day is open from 9am-3pm. We need people to come and do what you do. Any project you are working on or maybe a new project you’ve been meaning to start. There will be table looms set up and a triangle loom for people to demonstrate. You could bring your spinning wheel or something else to demonstrate. We also always have a little project that is free for people to learn and take with them.

We will be located in the barn near the house. You can demo in the morning, afternoon, or all day. The gates are open from 9am – 3pm. For morning or all day demonstrating means getting there around 8am in the morning to be able to have everything ready for when people arrive. The gates close at 3pm, meaning the last person through the gate is let in at 3pm. We start packing up around 4pm so that the last person through still gets to participate.

This is our main event of the year. As well as, our way to show our appreciation to Ms. Pat Peinhardt and the Peinhardt Living History Farm for allowing us to have a meeting place for all of our workshops.

Please email cullmanfiber@yahoo.com or call 205-540-5694 and leave a message, to let us know when you will be able to help out.
