2024 Demonstrations

Log Cabin Days has been fortunate to have a large number of experts volunteer to demonstrate crafts of yesterday. While today we do crafts for enjoyment, we recognize many crafts were born out of necessity in the early days. We hope you enjoy these demonstrations letting your thoughts go back to the times when everyone learned these skills to survive. You will have an opportunity to let us know if you would like more in depth lessons of any of the crafts.
