EASTON, Conn. -- Easton’s Historical Society is celebrating autumn by demonstrating how fabrics were designed and created from natural materials during the 18th century during an event from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead.

Joeanna Smith, an Easton resident, will show visitors how to weave linen sheets, blankets, towels and basic fabrics for clothing using a barn loom.

The barn will be open with docent Harry Audley showing antique farm tools and describing their various uses critical to farmers in centuries past.

Children will be able to draw water from a hand pump and grind corn into meal as part on this hands-on experience. They also will have the opportunity to weave their own potholder and create a sheep toy from wool.

The Bradley-Hubbell Homestead is at 535 Black Rock Road, Easton.
