Join us at the Massachusetts Sheep & Woolcraft Fair  in Cummington for our ongoing demonstration of 19th century natural wool dyeing!  Learn about the history of wool dyeing in early America with nature-based materials.  We'll talk about the history of wool in New England, its uses and showcase the different materials utilized during Bryant's era! We'll also share an example of a knitting pattern from Mrs. Bryant's Book of Receipts (vintage knitting? so cool!) This demonstration is FREE and included in the Fair's admissions.  All fair attendees are welcome to visit the Bryant Homestead for free t during Memorial Day weekend (we're just up the road from the fairgrounds!)
