Acknowledgements

This research depended on the archives of the Arden Craft Shop Museum. Special thanks to Curator and Archivist Liz Jones-Minsinger and to Arden Representatives Barbara Macklem and Sadie Somerville, all of whom welcomed me into the collection, provided me with scanning privileges and materials, and offered me many interesting thoughts about Arden.  Much of my research also relied on the wonderful guide provided by Mark Taylor's photographic history book, Arden.

Equal thanks to the Delaware Historical Society, where I first found mention of Maude Rhodes in the ephemera collection, and to Chief Curator Leigh Rifenburg, who kindly helped me find many beautiful brochures from the Arden Weavers.
