Justin Squizzero is a handweaver based in Newbury, Vermont who recreates historic textiles on 18th and 19th-century equipment. Squizzero’s textile training began as a child under his grandmother, followed by an apprenticeship to Kate Smith and Norman Kennedy of Marshfield, Vermont. Having previously worked at living history museums including Plimoth Plantation and Coggeshall Farm Museum, Justin returned to weaving full-time in 2013. Through his business The Burroughs Garret, he weaves historic reproductions and figured coverlets using a 19th-century Jacquard machine on an 18th-century handloom, and teaches British/American handweaving at The Marshfield School of Weaving.
