A Visit To The Ripley Loom Museum

Chuck and Donna Ripley live just outside the city limits in Faribault, Minnesota. Chuck has a flock of 100 sheep which he cares for. He is a former instructor, active in 4H and community activities. Both he and Donna weave as well as collect antique textile tools and looms. Two of their Norwegian looms are housed in an 1821 log house which is carefully maintained as a heritage museum. In side finished rugs are stacked on shelves. Browse handmade looms for more.
