Event Description:

“Drest in white of their own Spinning:”18th and 19th Century Textile Production

As with many rural homes in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Bratton family and their neighbors adopted a degree of self-sufficiency in the production of clothing. Historic interpreters will demonstrate various activities in the home manufacture of clothing: carding and spinning, dyeing with natural dyes, weaving, and tailoring. Come experience our ancestors’ ingenuity!

Time Travel Tuesdays: On Tuesdays this summer, join costumed interpreters and explore aspects of 18th and 19th century life for the Bratton family and others in the Carolina Piedmont.
