The St. Marys Museum is celebrating the change in seasons with its Summer Open House on Saturday, June 1 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. This event is co-sponsored by the London District Weavers and Spinners Guild and the range of activities planned will appeal to visitors of all ages.

The museum’s summer exhibit, Spinning a Yarn, will officially open on June 1. It explores some of the interesting artifacts in the museum’s collection that relate to local textile production. St. Marys was the site of many mills, including flax and woolen mills, and a place where professional weavers and spinners produced yarn and textiles for the community.

The exhibit also showcases the history of the London District Weavers and Spinners Guild, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Guild members will be providing demonstrations of their craft throughout the event so members of the public can learn more through hands-on activities.

“We’re thrilled to be able to display some of the unique pieces from members of the London and District Weavers and Spinners Guild,” says St. Marys Museum Assistant Curator Emily Taylor. “This is a way to celebrate the long history of this organization and place it within the historical context through objects in our collection.”

The St. Marys Museum is located at 177 Church Street South in Cadzow Park. Everyone is welcome at the Summer Open House and admission is free! For more information, call the St. Marys Museum at 519-284-3556.
