Spinning Workshops

In a world driven by convenience and immediate gratification, the satisfaction of creating something with your own hands seems lost to time. Our ancestors processed, spun and dyed yarn and sewed by hand for thousands of years. Slow down for a day and connect with the past at the Mercantile cabin.
