September Meeting - Part I

We had an interesting meeting in September.  Unfortunately our usual photographer/reporter wasn't there, so it falls to me (Ingrid).  Because life always gets in the way, this is a bit late and will be drawn out over several blog posts. 

Diana shared nine different squares of fabric she wove in preparation for doing a collaborative project with a quilting friend for the Holiday Cheer lap robe project for December.  She was inspired by an article in the January/February 2004 issue of Handwoven magazine.  These squares are all woven in Spot Bronson.  She used 10/2 cotton sett at 24 epi for the warp.  She used 3/2, 5/2 cotton and sewing thread for the weft.  The fabric was woven upside down to ease the treadling.  Below are all of the nine different patterns.  Although the treadling is different for each, Diana only used two tie ups for all nine designs.

Sue H has been working to make curtains for her home.  In an effort to use up existing materials and not have to buy new yarn, she found some fabric she wove several years ago.  She did weave 8 yards of the cotton trim fabric - used to create the loops for the rod - with what she called a pico edge


More from our talented members soon...
