Homespun: A Treasure Rediscovered

 

In the Winter 2017 Spin Off, I found an article called “Homespun Heritage”. The article highlighted the 1975 documentary film “Homespun” by Sharon and Tom Hudgins; they  filmed local folks from the southern Appalachian Mountains shearing sheep, washing, carding spinning, dyeing and weaving wool. Now, thanks to the  National Archives , the film is available via YouTube.  Take a look!

To welcome our newest neighbor Theo (born January 2012), Paul wove a cotton baby blanket in plain weave.
