Marguerite Davison Publisher is owned and operated by The Spencer Partnership, which began as a division of John Spencer, Inc., an independent printing company specializing in high-quality full-color printing. Its founder, John Spencer, came over from England to set up shop in Chester, Pennsylvania in 1866.

The business was handed down through his son Robert Chester Spencer to his grandsons, John F. Spencer, Robert Spencer, William C. Spencer, and Steven F. Spencer.

Today, great-grandson Bill Spencer, Jr. is delighted to continue publishing Marguerite Davison's handweaving instruction books, which remain the definitive books for the craft. Bill Spencer handles production, sales and distribution of the handweavers books.

Have fun weaving your way through this web site!
