Sit and Spin
If you're tired of forking over $70 or more for that trendy piqué polo, here's an alternative: Weave one yourself. You can learn how today at the Fort Bend Museum's Spinner Training, where museum docent Barbara Neeper will show you how to spin cotton and wool on drop spindles, a walking wheel and treadle wheels. Classes meet in the cushy digs of the historic John M. Moore Home (which beats a sweatshop any day). 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesdays through February 22. 500 Houston Street, Richmond. For information and registration, call 281-342-6478 or visit www.fortbendmuseum.org. $25; free for museum members.
Wednesdays. Starts: Jan. 25. Continues through Feb. 22
