Roc Day: January 9, 2021


Calling all spinners (and weavers, crocheters, knitters, etc.) to join us online for a few fun hours as we commemorate the day in medieval times when spinners went back to work after the holiday season.

We’ll be gathering on Zoom from 1:00 to 4:00 PM CST. Please send us a message for the login address and password.

“Partly work and partly play
You must on St. Distaff’s Day:
From the plough soon free your team;
Then come home and fother them;
If the maids a-spinning go,
Burn the flax and fire the tow.
Bring in pails of water then,
Let the maids bewash the men.
Give St. Distaff all the right;
Then bid Christmas sport good night,
And next morrow every one
To his own vocation.”
—Robert Herrick
