Tying Together the Threads of Heritage

Abstract:
In 1837, Mike Harmon's ancestor, James Cash Goodwin, left England to seek his fortune in America as a weaver. His ship sank, but he saved his family's weaving patterns. Today Harmon is a sixth generation weaver, continuing a weaving tradition of over two centuries. The Buffalo Creek Weavers in Ashe County weave bedspreads on a century-old loom. The rare colonial patterns on the spreads date back to the early 1700s.
