Pat McKinney taught herself how to weave after her husband, Rudy, built her a tape loom a few years ago. After Rudy started making the tape looms to sell, Pat joined him at living history events and began demonstrating the weaving of “tapes” and explaining their importance in 18th-Century life. She weaves mostly with linen and takes an occasional custom order for a tape or tapes, so her business (1777 Handwoven Tapes) is a tiny subsidiary of R. McKinney, 1777. Pat is able to illustrate some of the uses of tapes on her own period appropriate clothing that she wears at living history events.
