    This thing was my Great grandmother's and I have no clue what it is. My Grandmother thinks it had something to do with making rugs. It has no writing on it or any other marks. Any ideas?

    Looks like it does have something to do with making rugs. Looks like it might be used to keep the pile consistent? Not sure. Very interesting though!! That's cool, I like old stuff [​IMG]

    Antique Flour Mill Canvas Stitching Hand Tool.

    This stitching tool was used in Grain Mills or Flour Mills to stitch the canvas bags closed once the bags where filled.

    Just a quick pull of the string the stitching would let go, similar to unzipping a zipper.

    What an awesome heirloom!!
