The clothes we wear-what this theme is about.

ThemeCWW-V01This is a story of how two very different people, one a Clerical Gentleman the other a humble weaver and spinner revolutionised the weaving and spinning industries in Britain. The book tells you about:

  • Reverend Edmund Cartwright—inventor of the power weaving loom.
  • Samuel Crompton—inventor of the spinning machine.
  • Charles Tennant—a chemist who turned the time consuming process of bleaching cloth into a mater of moments.

Read about the perils of invention and having your ideas stolen and the effect of a Prime Ministers assassination on your reward for hard work.
