The Fort King National Historic Landmark is continuing its series of historic cooking and crafting classes this weekend with ‘Cross Stitch.’
On Saturday, September 10, from 10 a.m. until noon, class participants will learn how pioneer women passed the time while creating a cross-stitch piece that can be taken home.
Next month, the ‘Historic Homesteading’ series will continue with ‘Broom Making’ on Saturday, October 8, and those in attendance will learn how to make full-sized pioneer brooms.
On Saturday, November 12, the series will wrap up with ‘Cast Iron Cooking,’ and participants will get to create their own delicious recipes to eat.
The classes are for adults (ages 18 and up), and there is a $15 fee to participate. All classes will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Fort King National Historic Landmark, which is located at 3925 E Fort King Street in Ocala.
