Stahlstown Flax Scutching Festival

If you are in Stahlstown, PA this weekend, go see the flax scutching festival.  They have a good video of the festival here, "Stalhstown Flax Scutching Festival," http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IRMvC1eDxo.  In the video are clips in random order that show steps in flax processing such as drying flax above a fire, mangling cloth, weaving, scutching, and breaking.
