The Farm Fest at Case-Barlow Farm will showcase displays, demonstrations and games for all on Sept. 18 from noon to 5 p.m.

Linda Ash will be on hand to demonstrate how wool is spun into yarn using the farm's own antique walking wheel. She will answer any questions about the process, show examples of handspun yarn, including a tunic top she knitted from homegrown, handspun linen. Other tools of the trade will be on display, including drop spindles and carding combs.

The quilt show will focus many various patterns and techniques including a very old and well known arrangement of triangle and rectangles called Churn Dash and the more freeform style called Crazy Quilt.

Others will be demonstrating chair caning, tatting, bread making, butter churning and antique tools.

Prizes will be awarded in two categories in the Just Desserts Contest: Youth (18 and under) and Adult. Desserts must be delivered to the farm between noon and 2 p.m. in order to be judged.
