Lovely for your country, primitive, traditional or colonial decor. A bit of history: Mike Harmon of Buffalo Creek Weavers is a sixth generation weaver. His Great-Great-Grandfather, James Goodwin began weaving in a silk shed in Macclesfield, England in 1812. The Goodwins came to America in 1837 and operated various mills in Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia. John Goodwin, Mike's Grandfather, taught Mike weaving at the family business Goodwin Weavers in Blowing Rock, NC. John had traveled throughout the Southern Appalachians creating pattern drafts from historic coverlets. The Goodwin Weavers produced sixty of these patterns until the business closed in 1990. Now the family tradition continues at Buffalo Creek Weavers in West Jefferson where Mike is using the old family looms from the 1880's and the historic patterns to produce quality coverlets, throws, pillows, and tote bags.
