Crafting was an important part of life out on the prairies. Knitting and crocheting to make warm clothes in the winter time, quilting to make a blanket not only to keep your family warm, but also to pass the long, cold winter evenings.
Activities had their uses, to waste time doing nothing could result in dire consequences. Staff always enjoy being able to practice their crafts, stop by and ask us about our current projects, and let us tell you about how people would have used the craft in late 1800’s.
