WISCASSET — Lincoln County Historical Association will present its first winter lecture, Woven at Home — Textiles in the District of Maine and the rest of New England pre-1840, at 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, in the Wiscasset Communications Building behind the County Court House on Route 1.

Marjie Thompson, weaver, teacher, textile researcher, author, and vice president of the New Hampshire Weavers’ Guild, will give a history lesson about the use and production of textiles in northern New England before factories made the household spinners and one or two weavers per town obsolete.

Coffee and pastries will be served. A $5 donation is appreciated.
