Crossnore Weavers is a production weaving shop that allows self-guided tours. In the two hours we were there, the team of weavers explained many of the steps involved in the weaving process from loading bobbins to the finishing of woven fabrics all while weaving fabric from placemats to an ancient Scottish tartan pattern.
This is not your typical fabric production shop with rows of automated weaving machines; this is a hand's-on shop with between 12 and 15 looms of various sizes. For a weaving aficionado, it's definitely worth the trip.
While you're there, stop by the Sloop Chapel (walking distance from the Weaver's Museum) and view one of the Ben Long Frescos (Suffer the Little Children).
