That's great, Sheryl!
I'll set you up on the Main Floor (not the Lecture Hall), in front of your booth, so you will be available to be seen for several short demos during the day -
Thanks!

Spinning fiber demo. We should know how to make thread and yarns for hats, gloves and warm clothing. Many plant and animal fibers can be used. All supplies necessary will be provided for you to try it yourself. This technique has been in use for thousands of years. For farmers, hemp farming is quickly becoming the next big cash crop and is used for so many uses including clothing.
