HOME TEXTILE TOOL MUSEUM
Esther Weldon was dyeing skeins in a cauldron over a fire. Fortunately it wasn’t too hot that day. The flax in the little plot next to the barn was just starting to bloom. It looked to be about three feet high. Nearby a fellow was shoeing a horse.
I was intrigued by the elaborate chip carving on the table of a great wheel in the big barn.
In the house there were lots of spinning wheels including this rare Farnham accelerating wheel. We were told there are only three known to exist. There was also this three legged quill winder along with beautiful old Pennsylvania overshot coverlets.
