The initials of the weaver are embroidered on opposite corners in pink, ‘P B’. Priscilla likely produced this blanket “from scratch” having processed and dyed the wool herself before weaving on a small loom in the home. Both Priscilla (1844-1936) and husband Frances Westerman Krafft (1841-1926) were born and lived in Stevensville, a village at the south edge of present Niagara Falls. Members of the Beam and Krafft families were in business together. Priscilla’s extended relatives included J. L. Kraft, creator of Kraft Dinner cheesy macaroni.
