Sampler Napkins, almost…

Fresh off the loom

Instead of making the 8″ Four Shaft Color & Weave sampler blanket from Janet Phillip’s Exploring Woven Fabrics, I decided to expand the draft into 8 napkins, plus some room for play at the end. This was a fabulous project, I really enjoyed seeing how each wefting was affected by the different light/dark threadings (1×1, 2×2, 4×4).

Of course, now they need cutting, hemming, washing & pressing. The towels I took off the loom in May, 2020 😳 are still awaiting the final hems. Obviously, not my favorite part of the process!

      Thank you! Are you ever going to be in La Grange again? I’m going down every other month now!


      1. I don’t have plans to be in LG any time soon. I thought I might make it on this trip, but had too many doc appointments spaced out so couldn’t go. I don’t plan to be back in the states until next year, but I may try another trip in the fall depending on Covid.
