Coggeshall Farm Museum will celebrate Textile Weekend on Saturday, Aug. 28 and Sunday, Aug. 29.; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The event will feature costumed historians from Coggeshall Farm and Old Sturbridge Village demonstrating the process of making historic clothing from start to finish. Guests will see historic wool picking and carding, dying, spinning, weaving and sewing.
