Notes: 

I wanted to create an art piece for our Landings Art Association’s Gift of Art Show at the Plantation. This piece was the end of a thick and thin cotton and linen warp. I used a variety of my handspun yarns as weft.

In order to create the line drawing, I stretched the cloth on 9x9 inch canvas stretchers and then stitched into it with black wool/mohair blend yarn. I outlined the small square with stitches and then created a warp of the yarns and needle wove into it to create the woven square.

I did not like the edges of the woven piece showing on the stretcher so I added some black ultra suede to cover them… Right side against the stretcher wood, a piece of cardboard the size of the wooden stretcher side stapled down on top of the cardboard. Then I folded the ultra suede over the cardboard and pulled it to the back of the stretcher and stapled it. it created a nice frame effect, but I wanted a mat-like look. I purchased some 1/4 inch plywood and had Home Depot cut it 13x13 and spray painted it black. I tacked it to the back of the stretchers with 1/2 inch brads. because I wanted the piece to stand out from the wall I covered 2 inch by inch foam core pieces with some ultra suede and hot glued it together and to the back of the piece.

Displaying handwoven art pieces is ALWAYS a challenge.

This is run #2 of this series. This time I’m using brighter colors and a little bit of a heavier beat to test the hand in comparison to the first run. Pictures to come!

About 3/4 of the way through the third scarf my loom's electronic interface stopped working:(  Louet has been fabulous about fixing it so quickly and I should have it back Tuesday!

Notes: 

The above measurments are w/o the 5" fringe on all sides.  This is woven and fringe tied while still on the loom.  When the blanket comes off the loom you only need to tie off the fringe attached to the front tie-on beam.  I also wove a small car blanket on the remanding warp.  Measurments to come.  Blanket was threaded 2 threads per dent based on 15 epi (so 30 threads per 1 inch ).  Worked best to wind double.  I doubled the height of the block to make them larger.  Make sure you have a strong thread to wrap your fringe around.  I used a shoe lace tied to back and front beams.  This is a Yarn Barn of Kansas pattern.

Notes: 

I wanted to thread up the loom in a straight draw and get some simple results to fiddle with some finer threads.  I came up with a couple of twill patterns and wove them right up.  At the next show two sold right off the bat!  :)  Color on black is pretty popular.  I wove two scarves with hand dyed varigated yarn purchased from Just Our Yarn (because they are some fabulous girls!!!) and two were woven with solid tencel.

Additional Source Info: 

Echo weave is one of my favorites because of the visual stimulation.  There is a special magic that happens when you combine/echo two colors in the warp.  These four are my latest creation!  I can't wait to get started weaving them!!!
