On saturday I drove to Willimantic CT to the Windham Textile Museum.
We have loaned 6 Merrow Machines to the museum for their terrific sewing machine retrospective. Among them are: the oldest Merrow Machine known to us, one of the most interesting, and a couple that did a great deal of the heavy lifting in the industry for much of the 20th century.
Thank you Michelle et al. for the opportunity to participate. I would encourage anyone who is interested to take time this fall to visit.
If you're feeling reluctant give me a call, i'll talk you into it... ;)
