WEAR RED DAY!

Friday, February 7, you can make a difference by wearing red! Go Red For Women is an organization that brings to the fore front the topic of heart disease in women.  So, in celebration of 'wear red' day, I've chosen these wonderful woven items to bring to your attention.
At our recent weavers' meeting Pat brought her yardage to show off--she has different sections suited for placemats and towels. 

We love this weaving structure!  So here is Pat's hand at giving us RED for the day!

In this towel she added purple in the weft--hard to tell it's purple, but it makes a nice contrast to the red and white

 
Her selvedges are grand-- 


How about the plain weave in between the sections?  This will give a nice hem

Dottie showed her latest handwork, counted cross stitch, on hand-woven fabric.  She will turn this into a pin cushion as an exchange gift

We are discussing our next study--rug mats.  Now, there are various ways we can go with this topic so Rosemary bought several of her double woven mats to give us some inspiration

Rosemary has a weaving student, who is a pianist.  He is making great progress with his weaving.



He has the weaving 'bug'!

Go out and wear red on Friday and remember--every day is a good day to think about your heart health!
