"To survive, the pioneer family of the early 1800's had to know many crafts and skills. How the sheep were sheared; the wool washed, carded, spun and woven into cloth. How the family braided rugs, made furniture, dipped candles and even made its own quill pend and ink."
From the 1973 Educational Films Catalog
