Moon Lake Threshing Bee textile building
Even though I don’t get much time to sew at home i really enjoy my weekends to demonstrate my treadles and hand cranks. This is the 33rd Annual Moon Lake Threshing Bee
and I’m excited to be part of it.
Over the years I’ve been demonstrating here it has grown and improved. First year I was in an old chicken coop with dirt floors. After that they built a large barn building for me and the rug loom demonstrator. The following year they put a concrete floor in for us.
I’m privileged to be a part of it!

This evening I’ll be packing up the car for my yearly visit to the Pioneer Village Museum Heritage Days weekend in Barron, Wisconsin. This year is the 50th anniversary of the museum. If you’re in the area, join me. It is a wonderful place and this weekend there will be many demonstrations and living history to enjoy. Check out the website at https://www.barroncountymuseum.com/heritage-days.
This is my current project. I’ve been working on it over the last couple of years (yes you read that right) while doing the summer demos.
Due to my sewing studio being under remodeling and working a full-time job the only time I’ve been sewing recently is during the summer demos I do.
Finally got all the strips sewn together and this will be the layout, with a slight modification – the top will be placed at the bottom so I have rounded edges. More to come!
Welcome to my free WordPress blog! So glad you could join me. Keep in touch 😀
Just wanted you to know that the website will be shutting down in March. It is too expensive to keep up and I can use my Facebook page for all the information. I have moved some things already.
Thank you! 😀
