Rug Making in Deerfield

Read Aloud

Rug-making is perhaps the greatest industry of Deerfield. It was revived a few years ago, and an organization formed for the purpose of furthering the work. Within a short time the rug-makers have numbered sixty, though there are probably not quite that number now.
