Mary Martin Sloop established the Weaving Room at Crossnore School to preserve the ancient craft and to provide an income source for many mountain families.
Women would weave their rugs and clothes on looms in a special building at Crossnore, and sell their wares from the site. They would pass on their tradition to young Crossnore residents in the process.
