Event details

Join us for a day of all things string!  Beyond tying packages, string comes in many forms.  Consider:  silk, and linen, and wool, in spinning, or weaving, or sewing, or embroidery.  Then there is "string" of metal for jewelry and other adornments.  String is also found in music and in archery.  Think of the possibilities!

Count on comestibles (dayboard), classes, and Court. 

We will once again be at the 1st Unitarian Church of Wilmington (DE).  The site is discretely wet, and is a nut-free building.
