Colonial and Pioneer Spinning and Weaving

 

Spinning and weaving in early American history were important to the survival of settlers and vital to the development of the Industrial Revolution.  Students learn how the entire family shared the tasks of making cloth.  Students will experience various spinning techniques, tools used, and the processes used to create fabric during this time in our nation's development.
