This is us playing in the yarn room

The rug shop employs men and women who get paid by the square foot. Most have a loom at home and can work when they have the time. They do periodic checks to makes sure there are no child labor laws being violated, although that would be hard to enforce. It seems any way a family can make some extra money- they will go for it. Desperate times, call for desperate measures.
The workers come to the store and get a kit with all the yarn they will need and the pattern they must follow.
The kids loved playing in the yarn pit!
