  • Antique loom July 1, 2019

    Do you know of a site or museum that might be interested in having this old loom?  The loom has been on display as an educational item in the plantation barn for many years, but no longer fits in with new our exhibits.  Feel free to pass on my information to anyone who might be interested.

    The Guild House does not have room for antique looms. Contact Angela directly for information on this loom.
