Needlework Fabrics history & the ADAMS needlepoint CANVAS fabrics mill.
The art of weaving has been engrained in European culture since antiquity. One of the first historical accounts comes from over 28 centuries ago, in Homer’s epic “Odyssey”, in which Queen Penelope was weaving an elegant fabric using her hand-moved wooden loom, as she was waiting for Odysseus’ return to the Greek island of Ithaca.
