Museum Finds

Museums are so much more meaningful when you know what you are looking at. Having read Women’s Work: the First 20,000 Years, then seeing the post holes from a vertical loom one day and an actual vertical loom the next was pretty cool, but I’ll always have a soft spot for the spindle and whirl.

The fact that scissors like these were used hundreds of years ago and are still used, at least by many seamstresses, in the form of snips is also pretty cool. Feeling so connected to the past.
