My geek worlds collided tonight! At guild we had a historian come in to discuss home textile production (spinning, weaving and knitting) and it's impact on the Acadian home in the 19th century. She touched on such influences as the logging industry (seasonal, huge demand for underwear, socks, mitts), catalog shopping and transportation innovations. I'm not sure how many of the guild enjoyed the talk (looking around the room, I realized maybe everyone doesn't enjoy the thought of digging through 500,000 pages of census information!) but I am now itching to head back to the school library and the microfiche!

I have decided not to attend the workshops Lucy Neatby will be holding for the guild in Ottawa this April, the timing is just bad.
