In 1733, John Kay invented the fly shuttle, which literally flies through the warp threads to rapidly produce the filler in the weaving process. Between 1754 and 1767 James Hargreaves developed a Spinning Jenny that could spin multiple yarns simultaneously. Samuel Crompton invented the mule spinning frame in the 1780s that could rapidly twist a fine length of yarn onto a cone or cylinder. In 1785 Edmund Cartwright patented the steam power loom making possible the location of factories away from fast-flowing water sources. The Scotsman Thomas Bell

perfected printing on textiles in 1783 with his development of an engraved roller print machine that could register
