Fiber Arts Day @ Kishwaukee Valley Heritage Society
The Kishwaukee Valley Heritage Society will host a Family Fiber Arts Day from 1 to 4 p.m. May 18 at the museum at 622 Park Ave. in Genoa.
Twelve artisans will demonstrate various fiber arts, including alpaca wool crafts (live alpacas included), lacemaking, hand and machine quilting, knitting, embroidery, basket making and more.
Children can experience doing laundry with a washboard and wringer, rag hair-curling, rope-making and creating bean bags after using a corn-shucking machine. All ages can play bags, make bubbles or engage in several fiber arts crafts.
Refreshments will be available for purchase, and live music will add to the festive experience
