Within this gallery, you will find items used in the manufacture of thread or yarn. They come from the Collection of Larry D. Smith. By clicking on the thumbnail images, you can access additional pages which provide some information about the item(s), their history, and their uses.
As with so many other types of antique items in my collection, after I had collected two of any thing, I found that I had a "collection", and of course, had to have more. So, as long as I could find them and afford them, I would collect the same types of things, such as the hatchels which appear in this gallery. I enjoy finding the subtle differences (or, in some cases, similarities) between items in this gallery.
