EVERYONE HAS A SPECIALTY – Some people are better at selecting thread colors (top right), and some are better at threading needles (top left). Family members in attendance Sunday (Aug. 6, 2017) at the first of Pottsgrove Manor’s four Living History Sunday events quickly learned who possessed which important skill. Museum staffers and volunteers were available to help visitors try their hand at sewing and embroidery using 18th Century needle-working tools (below), while they enjoyed the sunshine and a slight breeze outside on the manor grounds at 100 W. King St., Pottstown. There was a colonial toss-the-hoop game, too, which proved to be more challenging for youngsters than those several times their age. Living History Sundays continue Aug. 13, 20, and 27 from 1-4 p.m. at the manor. A $2 per person donation is suggested.
