My feelings about this piece:
As a weaver I am very proud to be making this flag. It
represents all that is American!
From the first that our country was born, weavers played
a big part . They were encouraged to sit before hand hewn log
looms that created crude woven cloth for the settlers of this
young nation. Our independance from England needed us to create
our own cloth and not be dependent on importing cloth from weaver
guilds in England.
The jean cloth that I find in old faded jeans that I get
are hand cut by me before placing them in a cotton warp shed
on an old Union loom that I found.The jean fabric is very old
in itself cause it was deveoped by a weaver in the west who needed
a durable fabric for the cowboys clothes to wear. American jeans
are desired around the world.
Then the flag itself is a symbol of our country that I
hold very dear because it is such a Blessing to be an American!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
My family tree places me here as the13th generation here
in this great country of ours. I feel privileged that they sacrificed
as many are doing today to give us hope,love and the ability
to practice our faith.
Family names that I can trace are Bunker, Preble, Hadlock
Thank-you for your purchase!
(Please note that next year a book with Phyllis in it will
be coming out under Country Living and Sterling Press
called "Crafting a Business". It will have her whole
story of being a weaver, wife of a blacksmith/fisherman and mother
for 30 years.)
