STORY OF THE QUILT SQUARE SHUTTLE BY THE ERWIN EXTENSION HOMEMAKERS
CLUB FOR THE HARNETT COUNTY HISTORICAL QUILT, 1989
Erwin Quilt Square
shuttle is a basic and important instrument in the production of cloth.
The filling quill goes into the shuttle and moves from one side to the
other to make the cloth. The shuttle holds the filling yarn that is
wound around a quill or bobbin which, when propelled through the warp
yarn in various patterns, forms cloth in infinitely long rolls which,
when finished goes to the garment companies to make the jeans, etc. for
all of us.
