Spinning yarn at Fall Festival

Submitted Photo The annual fall festival for the Harmony Historical Society was held recently in Blockville. The festival was on Saturday and Sunday, with very favorable weather conditions for both days. The festival included vendors with crafts, foods, demonstrations, a Civil War Re-enactment, book sales, the quilt show, antique tool display, spinning and weaving in the Nagel Weavers Show, chair caning, jewelry making, bow making, and much music. The old school one room building located on the historical society grounds on Open Meadows Road was open both days for tours. John Brown of Panama was in charge of the event. Lyn Nagel is the president of the historical society. Shown using her spinning wheel is Susan Washington Sipos, a member of the Hilltop Spinners, in the Weavers building. A wonderful time was enjoyed by all.
