Mission Mill Museum

Yesterday, we went to the Mission Mill Museum to feed the ducks. The Mission Mill has a wonderful history and shows how they used running water to power turbines to keep the mill in operation for many years. It was interesting looking around. We peaked inside old buildings and found an elevator taking us to the textile floor. On this floor was a large room filled with looms and a couple weavers. We were able to talk with them and they explained how to weave. I think it's important for children to understand how textiles were made prior to modern technology. I'm thankful that there are still people around who want to keep those old skills alive.

This lady has been weaving for over 40 years!

I have always wanted to learn how to weave on a loom. It looks so fun and relaxing.
