Pioneer Museum

My dad and I spent last week in Utah visiting my sister and her family and had a great time going to the museums and local sites.  We were able to take pictures in most places but one museum, and that museum happened to have the best spinning and weaving stuff there!  Oh well, here are a few fun spinning and sewing related things I found around town!

A spinning wheel used by pioneers when they came across the plains:

 Some very well used sewing supplies:

These looked like little string games made inside of a jar for the pioneer kids to play with:

Can you imagine using a sewing machine that looked like this?  It's foot-powered just like my looms and spinning wheel!
