Ever wondered how flax turns into linen? Jean Neff will answer all questions at the History Center's "Family Night." The program runs from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 215 Niagara St., Lockport.
Neff will teach about flax - past and present. This will include a presentation on the process of turning flax seed into cloth and linen. She'll use traditional equipment to demonstrate this process. Following the demonstration, guests can enjoy cookies made with flax.
Admission is free and the event is open to all. An optional pizza supper will be held at 5:30 p.m. Cost is a nominal donation.
"Family Nights" are a series of free-admission monthly programs and activities specifically designed for families with children ages 5 and up, but adults are welcome, too. Each night has a theme based upon history that happened in Niagara County, expressed through activities all ages can share and enjoy.
Reservations are requested for "Family Night." Call the History Center at 716-434-7433.
