The PPHS will be doing an exhibit at the Ossipee Valley Fair again this year. Drawing on History House's collection of hand crafted items, the exhibit will showcase the various skills people living in the 19th and early 20th century needed to make necessary household items.
Sewing, spinning quilting, basket and barrel making, shoe making and even toys for the children, this was a time when you didn't run to the store for items you wanted or needed. You made them yourself!
Visitors to the exhibit in the old Grange building on the fairgrounds can try their hand at weaving and take home a recipe for a farm favorite to try.
Fair hours Thursday July 9 - Sunday July 12:
Thursday - Saturday
9 am - 9 pm
9 am - 6 pm
You will also be able to purchase your quilt raffle tickets at the fair (and see the quilt displayed). You won't want to miss the change of winning this handmade masterpiece!
