Hi everyone! Well we maybe snowed in a lot but folks from Cushing just a few peninsulas up the coast north of here came by on a nice sunny day . They ordered shelf brackets custom made for their kitchen and a set if anirons for their fireplace.
Full of sunlight today and ready to thread the loom ! I have got my three layers of clothing on two pair of socks and of course my long Johns, Ha !

A look at the weaving industry in England at the time when our country was young . The Weavers there wanted us here in America to trade goods , as a British colony .
I know here in Maine there was plenty of white oak for ships masts and building of wooden boats. Anyway this video takes you through the stages of weaving into the industrial revolution . A good explanation from over the pond. Watch it .
