Oh, the spinning wheels
The Old Aurora Colony Museum will once again see spinning wheel magic as the Antique Spinning Wheel Showcase is back Saturday and Sunday, March 9-10.
Put on by the Aurora Colony Handspinners' Guild, this year's event will feature more than 35 antique spinning wheels in a living display.
Every wheel is fully functional and will be in constant use by the owner or guild member dressed in 19th century period clothing. Spinning wheels from the museum will also be on display, including the rare oscillating pendulum wheel, of which there are only five known to exist.
The showcase runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
