Six years ago, we found the last loom left. It was in Lewiston Maine, in a massive mill, abandoned on the top floor of the deteriorating building. We found it when an old-time sewing machinery dealer told Pete, "There's someone you need to meet." She was gatekeeper to this mill, an older woman who’s father also worked there for 40 years. She is also the gatekeeper to the history, and the people who came here to build their American dream. Now we're telling you, there's someone you need to meet. Meet Rachel.
