Pioneer Village (More State Fair!)

The Pioneer Village at the Sate Fair is quite nice. Like other parts of the fair, it is something of a museum and something of a live historical demonstration. I love historical reenactments and the collections that go with them. After all, if we don’t know where we’ve come from, how can we avoid the same mistakes going forward?

I even found a bit of tatting.

And, of course, the great wheel.

Oh, the looms, as well. This one had metal heddles, as I am used to seeing and using.

This one though, it had STRING heddles. Oh the tedium. Can you imagine tying on your warp with this loom? I shudder to think of it.
