Fiber to Fabric The Tennessee State Museum and the Handweavers Guild of Nashville hosted a special demonstration day at the museum.
Fiber to Fabric

On August 22, 2009, Guild members showed how fibers became fabric and encouraged children and adults to try their hand at spinning and weaving, breathing life into the historic spinning and weaving equipment exhibited in the museum. In addition, Tennessee master-teachers Lynne Vogel (spinning) and Geri Forkner (weaving) created contemporary artworks with participants during two specialized workshops.
