Understanding the complexity of handmade cloth can enhance your appreciation for the clothing worn by civilians and soldiers during the Civil War. Today, you can watch members of the local Wool and Wheel Handspinners Guild and Dogwood Lace group demonstrate the traditional art of spinning thread, and discuss the basics of making cloth in the Arkansas Ozarks. The Wool and Wheel Handspinner have their monthly meeting here at the park on the first Wednesday of each month.
