Please dig into your linen closet for old bed sheets (flat or fitted) and pillowcases and donate them!

The Barn at Wilder Homestead needs repairs - and what better way to raise cash than to use the Barn Looms to make rag rugs to sell?

Donations of sheets and pillowcases can be dropped off with Sandy Cardinal, Polly Anderson, or the Buckland Library.


Once collected, We'll keep you posted on progress, just in case you want to join in the fun of tearing them apart (maybe a 'Tear up the Night' Party), or trying your hand at weaving on one of those wonderful looms.
