Museum to Feature Local Yarn Spinners

(La Porte, IN) - Clothing made the old fashioned way is scheduled at the La Porte County Historical Society Museum beginning this month.  The Pioneer Land Spinners will be at the museum on U.S. 35 on the southern edge of the La Porte city limits January 14th from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.


The spinning of yarn from natural fibers will also be performed at the museum on February 11th.  


“Come learn more about how pioneers made their textiles from these knowledgeable women,” said Savannah Jackson, the museum’s assistant director.

Pioneer Land is the popular 1800’s-like village open during the La Porte County Fair and other times during the year.  The spinners display their skills at Pioneer Land, which consists of more than a dozen buildings like a blacksmith shop, log cabin and one room school house.
