Mississippi Valley Textile Mill

I am sorry to say that I haven't been following your posts this past week. We had both babysitting and company and kept rather busy. Well, both groups are gone now, so I can begin to pick up the pieces, or some of the pieces, at least. However, the next week might be busy too.

Although we have lived in the area for 12 years, we had never visited the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in Almonte. I mean to say it's a huge trip that takes almost 15 minutes, so we are to be excused, I should think. 😀

The same door from the outside and inside.




In the Gift Shop.




The special exhibit on the main floor. Although some look like paintings, they are all textiles.







There is a permanent exhibit upstairs including machinery from days of yore.






I know ... too many photos for one post, but sometimes I am a bit ...

Obsessive

I would love to visit this museum. I'm fascinated with art made of textiles and fibres, in fact I have some woven and embroidered art on my walls.

The looms are really impressive. Nice museum.

In this case, you could have been even more obsessive with your photos to please me. I once had a loom like one on the second floor. Being a fabric person, I'm flat out jazzed by these shots.

Great excursion, AC. And only fifteen minutes away.

Do I do too many photos per post? I think maybe I write too much.
Hubby, being the driver, wants to see where we've been!

There shouldn't be pressure to blog a certain amount. We all enjoy when you visit!
