gathering of 5 medals

This weekend was one of our favorite events of the year, the gathering of 5 medals. It’s a historical reenactment of the colonial period that changes from year to year. This year we found more people working with fibers than in the past.

I found the natural dyes to be the most interesting as it is an area I would like learn more about.


A great article I found on the topic can be read here.
