Barbara's Weaving Shop

Weaving Shop

When you enter our Weaving Shop, you’ll hear the steady rhythm of the rise and fall of the harnesses, the shuttle being sent back and forth through the warp, and the beater bar being thrown to tighten the weave. All this happens under the careful hands of our skilled weavers who share their insights into this craft as they turn rags into beautiful rugs. Watch our weaver at work on the 1862 two-harness barn farm loom — a loom that was found in most homes many years ago. Weaving threads into fabric continues the steps started in the Spinning Shop on the road to making clothing for the family.
