” . . . rather expect this to be more of a brief background and basic info introduction followed by more of an exchange and interaction as the time progresses. . . . We are friends as a result of our involvement at the Lake City-Columbia County Historical Museum where we are all docents as well as on the Board of Directors. As part of our activities at the Museum, we formed a living history group that focuses on the 1800’s. Attending reenactments and living history events and needing an activity that women of the era would have done……..we researched handicrafts. Spinning, drop spindle, knitting, tatting, embroidery – many choices of period activities. Finger weaving was appropriate for our Native American events, but we needed something that would be easier for folks to do……..bag and inkle loom were the answer!”
