Lloyd Shelby Stretton Jr.
April 1, 1942 - July 19, 2012

Lloyd worked with wood all his life, as did his Father and Grandfather before him. When Margrett began weaving in 1972 and then spinning in 1973 it was only natural that she turn to her husband for the tools of her trade.

Lloyd's handcrafted tools are one of a kind made here at the farm, mostly with our own woods. Margrett's talent wasn't limited to her fiber crafts, either. She painted many Spinning Wheels, Treadles, and other things that were very popular, and you can see many of them at Spinning Wheels. She still paints, but is broadening her skills with the paint brush.

Both of us worked at tools, and products for Fiber Artists. The beautiful drop spindles were a joint effort, along with the beautiful woods and metal work that goes with them. Our efforts were constantly changing as our interests branched into other areas. Always first and foremost the desire to enjoy what we did.

I miss working with my husband and enjoying all the things we did together. He leaves a wonderful legacy of accomplishments that will last and last. We no longer offer Lloyd's tools and have closed the wood shop. Thank you to our many customers who were faithful over all the years.
