Take a step into history this weekend

Ponca City Now - March 20, 2014 12:58 pm

The Pioneer Woman is giving you two opportunities to take a leap back into history this weekend.

Robbin Davis, museum director said in the morning the Southern Plains Fiber Guild will present craft demonstrations.

“They’ll do things like knitting and crocheting, they’ll do some hand looms, tabletop looms and those kinds of things," Davis said. "They are traditional crafts that have a tendency to disappear if people don’t practice them. I know that a lot of people are interested in picking up something new to do and this is a great way to be introduced to some of those crafts, so maybe they can get a feel for them, ask some questions they might have about picking a new craft up.”

This will start at 11 and go until 1 on Saturday

Following the craft show, a living historian will give a presentation.

Davis said the presentation is interactive.

"C ourtney Stone will be here and she is from Oklahoma City," Davis said. "She will portray a character called Ruth Sloan, who is actually a fictitious character ,but she based on Oklahoma suffrage in the year 1918.”

This program will began at 2 on Saturday afternoon.

Both events are free with the $4 admission into the museum.
