8, No. Addeddate Bookplateleaf Pages: Eliza Calvert Hall in her Book of Hand-woven Coverlets mentions the names of three Indiana professional weavers of coverlets, John LaTourette (or rather, she gives the name of his daughter, Sarah, who worked with him), Ann Hay, and John Getty.

Professional weavers (mostly men) would set up a shop or travel around and make coverlets. Often the person buying the coverlet would provide the weaver with wool they had spun and dyed themselves.

This coverlet was made by the Craig family in Decatur County, Indiana in. It is likely here where the coverlet was acquired. The style and structure are more common in Ohio than Indiana, where coverlet weavers tended to weave double cloth coverlets and favor two colors rather than the horizontal banding found in many Pennsylvania and Ohio coverlets.

One of these unique women was Sarah LaTourette. To date, LaTourette is the only woman documented to have woven coverlets on a loom with Jacquard machinery. Sarah LaTourette () was born in Germantown, Ohio, the daughter of weaver John LaTourette ().

The family moved to Fountain County, Indiana, in Indiana Coverlets and Coverlet Weavers book | Etsy book by Kate Milner Rabb. Volume 8, number 8.
