Harrisville Looms in NH






One of the most spectacular towns in New Hampshire is Harrisville. The old mill buildings made from brick have gorgeous old warehouse style windows and wide plank flooring. The waterfall and river actually pass under the mill buildings. The Harrisville Looms are one of my favorite places to sneak away to. Walls and bins of Roving and yarn, not a synthetic anything in sight! You walk in the little retail shop and your hit with the warm scent of wool.

My favorite thing is to go to the bin where you can mix your own bag of roving by color. I pull and stuff and think of ideas. I love it!!

I rushed home and made some flowers...
