Market Friday goes to Furnace Town Historic Site

in marketfriday •  6 months ago  (edited)

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on steemit. I have been pleasured by all of you, as you send in the most wonderful posts. Going places, doing things, buying merchandise. I have been surprised by many, not being familiar with the culture and I must say that it has been such an educational experience for me in so many ways and I hope for you also. This week, we will be going to the Old Furnace Town Heritage Museum in Maryland.

The Old Furnace Town Heritage Museum is an outdoor museum near Snow Hill, Maryland that uses a living history format with live demonstrations to re-create a vanished 19th century community. Totally cool. The artisans sit at the loom and weave all day. Unfortunately, she was out when I was there, but she left her work from the day before.

When I first traveled down South, I had never seen a cotton field before, so I stopped and got out of the car in South Carolina and picked a stalk, which I have kept all these years. I was totally fascinated by it. I was also surprised at how dirty it was.

Most people today associate weaving with women and believe it has always been that way. It would surprise many to learn that weaving is traditionally a man's job, especially in countries like Germany, where a lot of cotton was grown. It wasn't until the introduction of more mechanized methods of weaving, around 1870, that women really started to enter the workforce. By then, women could be easily taught how to use the machines and places like Lowell, MA experienced a boom. To this day, men still weave among Native American tribes, such as the Navajo, and some of the best weavers in the world are men.

Cloth is usually woven on a loom, a device that holds the warp threads in place while filling threads are woven through them.

You too can experience a traditional weaving class called: Introduction to Weaving. Truly an art! This two hour course will cover all the basics of weaving. You will plan a project, and create a one of a kind place setting.

All participants will make their own place setting to take home. No prior skills required.

Two historic treadle looms almost fill the Weaver’s House, which includes a warping board, triangle loom, carders and more tools of the weaving trade. Both looms are used in making rugs, table runners, placemats, hot mats, mug rugs, and tote bags. The triangle loom is used to make shawls.


image.png

Weaving meshed together threads that run in two different directions, and was done on homemade "handlooms". Without a loom, settlers could not weave cloth for making clothes, sheets or blankets. The weaver threw a shuttle, which carried the crosswise thread (weft) back and forth between the lengthwise threads (warp), then used the beater to push the crosswise thread against the already-woven material to form a flat, smooth piece of cloth. As well as weaving cloth, settlers used their looms to weave rag rugs. Some settlers brought their rags to the weaver, who wove them into rugs for a fee. — at Furnace Town Historic Site.

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

I didn't see any furnaces in the museum. snicker

My how times have changed ! I have seen some very beautiful woven wall art that was made on looms. For a while I toyed with the idea of getting one.... of a sorts. Of course THAT never happened. 😉

I did a Market Friday..... SURPRISE !! Here is my linkamadoo....

You didn't see the furnace? You need to look harder or perhaps look next week when I put the furnace. I have seen some beautiful woman art also and it's an incredible talent that I clearly do not have. I think that you should get one because I think that this is something that you would excel at. because, you know you don't have enough food around time right now. LOL

I am totally impressed! You did a market Friday and even left the whatchamacallit?! Thank you so much for stopping by and dropping the link.

I would like to say I will do all that stuff if I live to retire, but ya know, if you don't work, all that stuff takes money. Ugh ! Why is it like that ??? I'm going to check my power ball ticket soon. I may have been a millionaire for a couple of days now and didn't know it. If I am, I am going to be miffed that I worked those mandatory 5 Saturday hours this morning....LOLOLOL

Market Friday was VERY good to me. It is sitting worth more than any post I ever posted ! What ?? This has been a totally awesome week over on my account.

I'm energized !

Hehe! MarketFriday was good to me too this week! It must just be a great week, El! You have done excellent!

I think I would check that lottery ticket and then buy another this week!

If you live to retire? OMG! Of course you will. Who else will spend all that steemit money you are making? :)

I am energized too!!! Let's do this steemit thing!

Let's do !

I have a neat new post tonight. You will love it.

You were right!! Best post ever!

I think I dreamed I read this post last night lol. Still a bit fuzzy. I find it funny and strange how we take so much for granted. There is a lot of effort that goes into making a simple fabric, yet we have gotten so used to technology, we dont even think about it anymore. Not that I am complaining mind you. I always splurge on a few new $4 Fruit of the Loom tees every year or three :D

Im am working my fingers to the bone on mine. I am just trying to double dip here you know :o

Oh, you really are a double dipper! You aren't dreaming. You did read it last night! I thought. I do love the living history museums. One cannot beat the hands-on demonstration offered up. I would love to learn how to weave. I find it interesting, although admittedly, it would be a lot of work spinning the theads to do it.

Yikes!

Talk about working the fingers to the bone! Thank you for stopping by and leaving your words behind. Always appreciated!

Thanks for sharing. I love these living history museums, you learn so much more from the hands on / demonstrations than just looking at the equipment in a static display. This one is on my list to visit, maybe next summer we will make a trip to the beach and include this place in our adventures. If you are ever in southern New Jersey, near Cap May you should visit Cold Stone Village it is a similar living museum.

Thank you for stopping by! I do love these history museums and I had to go ahead and look up the one in Cape May. I love Cape May and my aunt lift their her entire life. There is a lot to be said for the Hands-On living history museums. I hope you get to visit this one next summer and yes! I have a weekend house over on the shore and love their Beach. It's an easy reach from there. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your words behind. It's always a pleasure to be in company of so many people that really enjoy living history.

Interesting, Denise. I never felt a piece of raw cotton or used a loam.

Since I crochet- or should I say have started again after the power went out after the hurricane and I couldn’t use the internet for a few days, I am interested in how the weaving is done.

I didn’t know weaving was a job the men did originally. But why not? I know some men can knit and crochet.

Have a great weekend! 😊 🌺 💕

Interesting that men did that. I mean, yes! Why not, exept that society has accepted as true that this is something women, specifically women. We started as young girls crocheting and knitting. Boys didn't normally do that as they would be ridiculed. Sad, isn't it?

Raw cotten was something I never touched until I traveled down to the South of the United States where all the big cotton farms were. I was amazed at how dirty it was! LOL

You are interested in weaving? That would be something fun to do, I would think. I can only imagine the things I could do!

I would love to see this!!!!!! I have always wanted to learn how to weave, someday I will. What a wonderful day, I didn't know men were the first to weave, interesting @dswigle. I guess since women have always done needlework and most handwork I assumed they were the weavers. Wow!!!!!

I know you would love to see it!!! Living history museums are so cool! The hands on demonstration is so amazing and teaches it so well. I have always wanted to learn how to weave and I found it interesting that men wee the weavers.

Thanks Kindly appreciated :)

That place looks incredible! It's 2.5 hours from me (I'm in northern Delaware), but I'd love to take the boys. I bet they'd love it! My youngest boy, 10 years old, is at least nominally interested in weaving. He got to try it at our own living history weaving museum (Greenbank Mill) and really enjoyed it.

Furnace Town reminds me of Heritage Park in Calgary - a complete 'living re-creation of an old town'. I need to figure out a way to go.

Exactly! It is like a re-creation of a town from way back when. t is actually quite easy to get to. I came from the DC area, but, didn't have 3 young boys. :)

I had 3 older kids, big difference.

I do love the living museums as the hands-on demonstrations rather than just looking at the loom and wondering how it works. They also have classes. But, with the distance you are coming, that would be a little much.

Thank you so much for stopping in and saying hello, leaving your words behind. Have a great night, Victor!

That'd make a fun overnight trip. Too late to plan for this year, but maybe next! I'm thinking Spring Break of 2020. Hmmmmm!

They have basically the same weather as you. I went in September and usually do Spring or almost Fall. I do not like these outside places in the summer as much. Crowded but not at all when I have been.

Spring it is!

Have a good Friday Denise! It is very interesting. Thank you for the story of the Old Furnace Town Historical Museum.
Indeed, before, only men were engaged in many production. And even knitting, used to be considered a purely male hobby.

I didn't know that until I went there, even though I had seen men in history, I didn't realize it was so widespread!

I love these live history museums! They are a lot of fun for me! I know some men that knit, but, in todays times, it is dominated by females and considered a female thing.

I wonder when the actual shift from men to women took place?

Thank you for stopping by and saying hello and leaving your words behind!! Have a wonderful Friday!

Only place I have seen cotton growing in the fields was in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), never seen the actual process in action, have seen the machine in a museum.

How much fun to practice this art of weaving your own Denise.

It's so funny that you say that, Joan. Just this morning when I was over by the beach, I went by a field of cotton! I don't have any near my house not for hundreds of miles true, but there is some over buns the house on the shore. I do love the living history museums because there is so much value in Hands-On demonstration. Being able to practice this with a person in the know is awesome. Thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello! It's always good to see you!

To think Persian rugs are still woven in the same way over the ages, offering beauty in each finished product.

Witnessing the old ways is magical, mostly powered by people. Have a wonderful new week Denise.

How intersting that she wove her own!!! Do you have any that she created? They woul be fun to see! You have parts also?Very nice!!! Did she teach you how to weave??

I can’t weave. From the loom there are several wooden parts left. I keep from as a keepsake. The spirit of the times and the warmth of my grandmother’s hands live in them ..
She weaved long tracks to the floor. We call them "polovik" (mat).
They were made of multi-colored rags torn with long ribbons.

Weaving has always fascinated me i have seen women here in Thailand doing it and my girlfriends mum does it as a living apart from farming i can never get my head around how quick and and precise they are something i will leave the women and other men to do...lol 😜

How cool that she does it for a living! I am fascinated by anyone who has such a wonderful skill like that! I am so dearly untalented that way!

Does your girlfriend weave also? Did her mother teach her how to do it? I am happy to let those do it who know how and i will be happy to buy it from them!

What an interesting post! I am one of those who assumed that weaving was "reserved" to women. I had no idea about the Navajo men and the their weaving skills.

You are not the first or last to assume that, trust me! I do love the living history museums that have hands-on demonstrations so that you can learn a skill. It was a really intersting place and is actually a re-created town from the old days. :) I forget what year, but, I will look it up.

Yes! The Navajo men are very proud of their weaving skills. I always thought history books showed women, but either they are wrong or I am wrong in thinking I saw that!

What a fascinating museum, interesting that only men did the weaving! I saw cotton growing many many years ago in a little town called New Germany not far from us which also had the biggest textile factories; those factories sadly closed their doors after cheaper Chinese imports came into the country!

Posted using Partiko Android

I found it rather fascinating too!! I had no idea!!! I just saw some cotton today when I went over to the shore. It is grown a little over 100miles from Washington, DC. I find that intersting. :)

Oh, yes! We are plagued by the cheaper Chinese imports here too! It ruined our economy for many years.

Nice post, as usual. Weaving is so much fun. I grew up in Romania and in elementary school we learned how to weave carpets. Grade 4 to 8. By the end of 8th grade I knew how to make a Persian carpet, those thick ones, like 1 inch thick. Cool stuff. I still remember the process, but I don’t know how to make a loom. Thanks for bringing back happy memories. Here is my post for this week https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@starjewel/market-friday-ikea-in-paramus-new-jersey 😊

Hi @starjewel!

I had no idea you were Romanian! Seriously! When did you leave the country? It was hard to leave there prior to 1989. I am impressed that you knew how to make a Persian Carpet! I bow down to you!

You still remember the process? I can assure you that if you really want to take it up again, I will find a way to get directions to build a loom!! I promise! You totally blew me away! Thank you so much for dropping the link here! I is much appreciated!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Museums are not only a good place to learn and admire things, very old objects and to understand ways of life. Museums are great for blogging. Thanks!

Hide an! I totally agree with you that museums are a place to learn and admire but also it keeps in remembrance and understanding of the culture of the region. Once that is lost, it is hard to pick up the threads.

They are a great place to blog and I sure wish I had had more time to lay this one out and piece it together but perhaps next time I can take more time to put it together. It's a bigger Museum and I will probably be showing another part of it. I hope all is well with you and that you have a most wonderful day!

#MarketFriday loves you !

Thank you, Denise! I look forward to seeing more. I am very busy these days, weeks with work and I cannot be as active as I want. I really think that I will be excluded from PHC because I do not succeed with the mandatory comments ...
So my days are pretty stressful now, I hope things get quieter.
Wish you all the best, I know that your vacation is closer and closer. I'm happy for you!

My days are crazy too!!! I know I don't get all the comments every day, but, I have done the best I can. It is all I can do for now. It has been crazy busy!

Vacation cannot come fast enough!!!! :)

Have an awesome day! @bluemoon

I agree! Waiting for the vacation is difficult, you want it to be as fast as possible. It will come, it will come, of course!

Thank you very much, Denise!

My pleasure, Dan! @bluemoon

When I first read the title and saw Furnace Town... I was NOT expecting this type of post.
(I was thinking a place all things furnace!

Of course you would! If I was moseying by this post, that is exactly what I would think, but, to be fair, next week, I will show off a part two with a furnace of sorts.

It is a living history museum and they have a whole town set up, I was just showing off that part of the town. It is an interesting little place, to be sure. I will make sure I show off a furnace of some kind to keep it all on the up and up!

Hehe!Thanks for stopping by, Dawne! @goldendawne

Thanks @dswigle, been scrambling to kick out the Sepia Saturday post for today, got rained out for the photo shoot for it this morning.
Managed to get it out about 30 min ago lol
I'll be here for Market Friday next week though( flower included lol )

Oh, that is awesome! I didn't get a Sepia out, but, I did post at the last minute earlier tonight. It couldn't do a sepia, but, I needed to post!

Glad you got it out and you plan to be here next week! A real honor to have so many loyal to the challenge! Thank you!!

For the flower too!

We have a similar type of museum here in Dhaha-Bangladesh. The national museum has a part where they showcase historical things like those handlooms. Maybe I'm gonna share them if I take a visit there. :) :)

That would be amazing!! I would love to see your living museum! I love the hands-on demonstrations that they have. You can learn so much from them.

I want to thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello, leaving your words behind!

I used to work for a garment company, it's always fun to look at rolls of colourful threads. The machines used are modern type now.

Oh, yes! This was a historical village from turn of the century! But it was interesting! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

Have a great day!
