This issue of Handwoven celebrates the beauty of a simple and sophistocated weaves. With good yarns, simple weave structures, clean colors and patterns, you will have an elegant weaving you will treasure for years to come.
In this issue, Elda Kohls explains how to use your warp as a literal canvas for stenciled art. Sara White’s flowing stole and Sarah Jackson’s playful tunic show its potential for color play. Susan Horton’s cheerful napkins and Suzi Ballenger’s graceful wrap add interest with stripes and simple floats. Fields of plain weave set off the spot Bronson of Karen Tenney’s elegant napkins and Diane Carpentier’s striking overshot runner, and Joanne Tallarovic’s striking rep placemats and Judith Yamamoto’s charming ornaments highlight the design potential of warp-faced plain weave. And for a touch of whimsy, Katrina King offers a time traveller’s scarf, Ann Durham and Sally Eyring share ideas for 3-D weaving, and Madelyn van der Hoogt muses on the meaning of tabby.
