Ide Adobe Day SHP

I joined fellow weavers and spinners at Ide Adobe Day in Red Bluff. We wore period dress of the 1850's. I can tell you I have a whole new respect for those people and the cloth they wore. It was a reasonably hot day probably around 100 degrees. We did get a spot under a lovely old oak tree that provided lots of shade, it was still uncomfortably hot. We rejoiced when the breeze came off the Sacramento River. It was a lovely day, got to talk to lots of people interested in the crafts if the period. Volunteers played period music, there were hands on period activities and crafts. It was fun to see how much fun the kids were having with a couple of sticks and a hoop they tossed back and forth.
