What's Included

It is easy for us to take our clothes for granted. At Historic London Town and Gardens, you are welcome to try your hand at the art of the textile. Some London Towners spun fabric, some were staymakers and tailors, and others were sailmakers. Most people in the eighteenth century had some familiarity with a needle and thread. Now you have the chance to join them. Participants will have the chance to dye fabric, sew canvas like an original master sailmaker, spin on a wooden wheel, and weave threads. All of this and more at the Spin, Sew, and Sail home school program. Throughout the program, parents may accompany their children and enjoy the program! We will also be providing a play area for parents with very young children in the Visitor Center. If you wish to explore the site beyond the play room or the program, we offer a discounted admission to home school attendees.
