- There is no spinning or weaving in our district at the present day. Long ago in my grandfather's time spinning and weaving was very common. There was a spinning wheel in every house. I do not know how they used to get the thread. They used to spin and weave sheets and skirts and in fact every one of their clothes.
Miss Mary Toman and Mrs Bruen and Mrs Bruen's mother used to spin and weave for all the town land and they got a lot of money for it also.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
