Let’s imagine that you are living in the 1800’s. Your family has just moved to Missouri from the eastern part of the United States. What are some of the things that your family would bring? Livestock, food, clothing, and many other things because back in the day you would create many of the things that your family would need as there was no Internet, Box Store or 3D printer, so many people brought a loom to make clothing & rugs.
What is a loom and how does it work? A loom is a weaving machine & when used properly knits threads together to make a single piece of material or cloth. Looms date back to ancient times & enabled the users to be able to make cloth quicker with more uniformity.
There are many different types of looms.
