These women from the Province of North Carolina proudly announced their names and intentions in The Morning Chronicle and London Advertiser, The Colonies were still dependent upon England for wool although they had a good supply of flax. Despite the hardship such a boycott, involved women throughout the Colonies formed similar societies, wearing homespun. Hand weaving and fashioning clothing were evidence of their patriotism. Most homes had a small flax wheel and, as home production of wool increased, many homes had room for the larger spinning wheel used for wool. Almost every hamlet and -town had professional weavers who wove the linen and wool into cloth. Little girls were introduced to the art of weaving with a small lap loom. On these looms could be woven tapes, shoe laces, belts, suspenders together in two sections. Often the weaver wove his name along with that of the owner and the date in one corner of the coverlet. A variety of weaves were available. The overshot pattern, consisting of three shades including a half-tone, is the simplest. It employed a binder weft, usually the same material as the warp, a colored woolen yarn which is the pattern weft and the warp of two-ply linen or cotton. The summer-and-winter weave was most commonly .found in New York and Penn- ^-sylvania. It produced a two- toned pattern and was reversi- i; ble. Both summer-and-winter I and the overshot weaves were i limited to geometric designs, l The block or double-woven \ weave was usually the work I of professional weavers and and hatbands, colorful and patterned ribbons. It was because of the scarcity of wool that linsey-woolsey was invented. With warp of linen and weft of wool, linsey- woolsey was used for clothing and other household purposes, German settlers in Pennsylvania are usually given credit for introducing their traditional weaving patterns and the bright red and blue into the linsey-woolsey coverlets and curtains. These coverlets with their complex designs were practical and decorative and gained great popularity in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Red and blue were the usual colors but it is not uncommon to find patterns woven in pink, green, yellow and brown. In the early 1800s the weaver was an itinerant who went from town to town with his loom, weaving threads of linen and home-dyed wool which housewives brought him. A double woven spread might take 40 pounds of linen and a good weaver could only make one or two coverlets in a week. Their looms were narrow and early coverlets were put required an elaborate loom. The double-shot weave actually combined two fabrics in one, a plain woven colored woolen combined with a plain woven natural cotton. Two warps were woven together to produce a design by interchanging the basic fabrics. At about this time professional weavers also were producing the jacquard coverlets with ornamental flower designs. The really old coverlets are scarce. However, if you find only a portion of one or one in bad condition don't discard it. These remnants can be used in many decorative ways. They can be combined with plain material for bedspreads, used to upholster a small chair or footstool, made into pillow tops or framed for the wall. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Mr, and Mrs. Claude Herman Arnold Colonial wonnen's boycott of English cloth in 1775 led to home weaving and creation of colorful, patterned linsey-woolsey coverlets.
