Road Trip-Guess Where?

Eye Candy


Loom and the cutting of the selvedges-those selvedges
are like the ones that we buy

Another loom

This is where they are looking for any flaws-there is
a light in back of the fabric and you can see a
chair that someone sits in and views the fabric.

All Done

Yesterday my husband and I went on a road trip. The really nice thing is that we live within driving distance from Pendleton Oregon, which is the home of the Pendleton Woolen Mill. We toured the mill and brought home some selvedges from rugs and 3 cones of wool. While we were getting our things a lady from Nevada came in and bought so many bags of selvedges that she was poking holes in the bags to get out the air, so she could buy more. The woman in the shop said that she comes once a year and stocks up. 


  1. Oh my goodness I am so jealous of your trip to the Pendleton factory! Think the cones of yarn would have had to come home with me.

  2. Yes, it was fun and I did bring back 3 cones. This was our first trip but I see more in our future.
