|Linda pulled out this gorgeous tea towel made from 8/2 cotton, sett 20 epi|
|She used the pattern from this leaflet from Interweave. This leaflet is in digital format now, if you are interested and it isn't already in your library.|
|Marian had this draft to work up--as a challenge to her for presentation at the 2013 state conference.|
|The front--now, the real challenge--how to reduce this to 6"x6" for the challenge?|
|Marian is always pushing herself to the limits of weaving. Here is M&O pattern from a workshop that she attended at Southwest School of Art in San Antonio.|
|She used variegated embroidery floss for the color contrast in the spacers as well as the weft|
|And practicing her skills at doubleweave pick up--these are her samples! We say she is darn good but she wasn't pleased with this outcome.|
|With an interest in Crackle Weave, several of us are eyeing this new book|
|Fairly new weaver Lisa jumped at the chance to take a workshop with Jason Collingwood to learn rug techniques|
|This smallish rug (just perfect to place at your feet while sitting at the loom) was soft and dense. Lisa used Jason's brand of rug yarn for her weft.|
|This colorful handspun wrap comes from the hands of our newest member, Kyla who is an art teacher.|
|Kyla likes to work with bright colors and by doing her own dyeing on her fibers she can achieve that effect|
|We like the orange!|
|She was knitting on this brilliant red handspun scarf. Why is it the camera doesn't like red??|
We have 2013 plans to assemble a raffle basket for Contemporary Handweavers of Texas. We pack lots of goodies and handwovens in our basket, which makes it a hot item!
