Then our leader, Marian, pulls out her samples with linen
She has decided on the weave structure but now deciding on what weft to use
Then on this sample she had hemstitching to finish off
Karen brought her window pane Swedish lace
Gerry had other lace pieces to show
These pieces were woven for a previous state conference
An interesting traditional Swedish weaving with traditional colors
Then there is Monk Belts weave structure
This shows another technique to add interest to the woven cloth
How about Swedish rug weaving?
And then there was the opportunity to present other weaving that were not Swedish
Karen used beads in the weft
Here is M & O's weaving cloth
Then Boundweave on Rosepath threading
More samples of absolutely wonderful weaving!
Here is a composite of Karen's Boundweave along with some textiles she bought in Philippines
Another composite with colorful weaves on the bottom and Turkish rug at the top (a gift from Barbara's daughter's travel to Turkey) So glad we have trained our kids right to look for interesting textiles on their worldly travels!!
