Each year, Old Sturbridge Village explores a different aspect of 19th-century textiles.

Please join us on August 17th & 18th for Useful Employment: Textiles and Other Home Manufactures. See Costumed Historians demonstrating spinning, dyeing woolen yarn, weaving, knitting, sewing, straw braiding, and sewing shoe uppers.  Discuss with them how these hand skills allowed families to use spare time at home to earn extra money.  Try your hand at working a mitten or help to knit scarves for soldiers. Join a tour to make connections between each of these skills and how they were part of the economy of a rural New England Village.

During the month of August 2018, up to three kids 17 and younger are admitted FREE when accompanied by an adult paying full admission. Learn more here.
