Potholder Looms Last Chance!

Last chance to order potholder looms and extra loops. Because these potholder looms make a fun seasonal gift – we just brought more in for the holidays! If you looking for a stocking stuffer or have someone’s birthday in the near future, these are a delightful, fun gift to have on hand. Planning a car trip over the holidays but not doing the driving? It might be fun to have the time to create your own potholders while the scenery flies by. Order yours now – when our current stock is gone, it’s gone.

Lotta Loops Back In-Stock

You’ll have enough loops with your Potholder loom to create 6 potholders. However, take our word for it – you will run out of these loops before you know it 😉 Especially if you have grandchildren wanting to weave when they see you weave on the looms at your house! We have stocked up on 4 different colourways so get them while you can and be ready for the creativity to flow!

Holly & Berry Cottolin Tea Towels

Our Holly & Berry Tea Towel kit in cottolin comes in Forest Green or Rich Red and weaves 4 towels each, perfect for the festive season. There’s still time to weave them!

From Our Inbox

We’ve been saving the following letter we received from Teresa (Denver, Colorado) since the summer. We thought she would inspire everyone with her fabulous napkins that would look perfect on any Christmas table. You still have time to be inspired by what she has woven and have fun weaving with red and white to celebrate the upcoming holiday season. Well done, Teresa 👏👏👏


I am a huge fan of the School of Weaving, and have watched every episode so far. Jane is the best teacher!! I am writing to you from a suburb of Denver, Colorado.

I was very intrigued with Season 6, Episode 9 (Block Analysis), and decided to try interpreting several traditional Swedish cross-stitch patterns in fine linen. As in this episode, the weave structure was Bronson Lace, threaded on 7 shafts. The warp was 40/2 linen, bleached with block framing threads in red, slayed at 30epi (600 ends), in a 10-dent reed. The warp length was 8 yds, enough to create 10, 23” napkin lengths (including 1 1/2” for hem at each end),with a bit left over; warp width on the loom was about 20”. The weft was the same bleached or red 40/2 linen. I eventually used 4 different tie-ups, each with 5 pattern treadles and 2 tabby treadles. I wove each of the four patterns, either using red linen for the pattern with bleached linen plain weave in between patterns, or bleached on bleached patterns with red linen dividers. I also wove a couple of the patterns as “bands” with 3” of plain weave in between.

My selvedges were not perfect, but overall, I was pleased with the results, and had fun with the designs! Please see the attached photos.

Best regards,
Teresa Coons

Mix & Match Towel Gifts

Shades of Grey

Oslo Tea Towels

We’re excited to introduce you to a new kit..Oslo. Oslo grew out of our Rustic Elegance Tea Towel and is perfect for anyone who liked the look of that tea towel but thought a bit of colour might make it sparkle. We played with a different Colour and Weave threading, framed our new creation with Cherry and it popped!

We realized, as we were “playing” with Oslo, that we have a number of tea towels that it would pair beautifully with – in anyone’s kitchen. The idea grew into why not weave several different kits while there’s still time. You would have a selection to choose from when you are deciding who would get what for Christmas 🙂 And…the recipients of your thoughtfulness would have towels that would add an elegant look to any kitchen. One thing led to another.

Think about it – Oslo hanging out with Alfresco, or Garibaldi and Rustic Elegance patiently waiting together to be put to work. Depending on how ambitious you are – you could weave them all and give the very special people on your list a selection of towels – instead of “just” two.

As a bonus – think of the fun you would have weaving them!


These towels are based on classic, old-world patterns with a contemporary twist. Incredibly versatile, they’ll be perfect with charcuterie and wine in a modern stainless steel kitchen, or a rustic picnic in the great outdoors come springtime. Woven in Turned Twill, Alfresco Kit weaves 8 towels in 8/2 cotton.

Rustic Elegance – Linen

Our beautiful huck tea towels have a rustic yet modern elegance, perfect for your minimalist decor. Woven in organic 16/2 linen from Venne in Holland, these towels will be passed down for generations….they are new heirlooms. Rustic Elegance in Linen kit includes 5 cones of organic linen to weave 4 stunning towels.

Rustic Elegance – Cotton

It is always so much fun to design contemporary fabrics with weave structures that have been used for centuries. Huck has been used for towelling since the middle ages. The simple 2 stripe design presents 4 different ways to use Colour and Weave patterning on Huck weft floats. Rustic Elegance, the 8/2 cotton version gives you 8 towels woven on 4 shafts with a finished dimension of 21.5″ wide by 28″ long.


Garibaldi 4 shafts

Garibaldi 8 shafts

Our Garibaldi Flats collection is inspired by the greys and whites seen on the mountains in Garibaldi Provincial Park in beautiful British Columbia. This kit is available in 4 shafts simple straight draw 2/2 Twill or 8 shafts Turned Twill. The graphic and colour plays are endless with both of these kits.
