Sunday was his day off, we had planned to sneak in another camping overnight, but the forecast of rain just didn't seem to make a one night stay feasible.
What to do? We went to see how they did his job 75 years ago at Lang Pioneer Village, just outside Keene.
Jacquard Loom. They have built a new exhibit that when done will demonstrate how this amazing loom would have worked 100 years ago. (The first computer card system was inspired by the technology used in this loom, as the threads are either up or down, 1's or 0's)
We spent the day wandering the grounds meeting many lovely volunteers and had apple pie for lunch!
I brought home a souvenir:
I am not sure what I will do with this lovely yarn, someone in Ontario raised the sheep, someone else sheared the sheep, then the fiber was sorted, cleaned, carded, spun and they dyed it (with natural dyes) and I bought it for $7!
Thank-you to those who work hard to provide us with all that we take for granted.
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend.
