In a historic 1790 home in the hamlet of Kingsbury, a Crazy dream has come true for Hilary Cooper-Kenny. Utilizing leftover products of the textile industry and antique looms, old blue jeans and millends, she manufactures functional, durable and beautiful floor coverings while fabric remnants become fashionable rag bags.
While Crazy as a Loom is a working studio, visitors are always welcome. There are literally tons of fabric, and many projects in progress at all times. It is all about color and texture. With 13 antique looms, 10,000 pounds of fabric and 2,600 square feet in which to work, visitors will be treated to the rhythmic sounds of old looms doing their job, treadles to floor, harnesses raised, beaters packing the weft and the opportunity to weave their way into one of Washington County’s formerly best kept secrets.
