Maine Women's Journal Features Thornton Oaks Resident Pat Hart

“After looking at one of my handwoven shawls, people often wonder how I as a blind person can do it!

Well, here is my story.

When we moved to Harpswell seven years ago, I had no notion of becoming a weaver, let alone a Maine businesswoman. We moved into our house on the water and I listened to the birds and the sound of the waves. I enjoyed the hum of the lobster boats and worked in my garden. But I needed something more to do—something new. So I started looking around.

Halcyon Yarn in Bath had an open house. I was amazed at the yarns of every description stacked up to the ceiling. I sat down at a small floor loom and my husband knew it was all over.”
