Spinning a Story: Guild Field Trip

On March 18th guild members attended Spinning a Story: A collection of eighteenth and nineteenth century prints, illustrations, and reproductions of the spinning wheel at Manchester College in North Manchester, Indiana.  Members of the Blends and Friends Spinning Guild joined us, along with other attendees. Most of the pieces were collected throughout Europe by Annamarie Wagoner and her father, Robert Wagoner.  The works in the exhibition are featured in a book by Robert called “Spinning and Sex: Glimpses of Women, Work, and Love in Bygone Times”.  A copy of the book can be found in the guild library.  There was a reception, followed by a presentation given by Robert Wagoner.
