From Our Inbox

We’ve received photos of a stunning shawl woven by PK from New Zealand. We love seeing what PK has created and have shared her weaving with you in a previous newsletter. This time PK created a 40/2 linen shawl, using a division of space in 3 with one of the thirds in stripes – Fire Red, English Rose, Denim and Ginger. The warp was a total of 600 ends at 20epi. What a fabulous shawl PK, and thank you for your generosity by being willing to share this spectacular shawl with your JST “family”.

From Our Recipe Files

Rosemary, an amazing chef and baker, has helped keep Salt Spring Island tummies happy for years. Jane’s in-studio students (before the School of Weaving was launched) were fed like royalty during their stay on SSI. One of the many ways that Jane showed her friend how much she appreciated her was by creating a beautifully framed Name Draft. Head to video 6.5.2 – The Process of Name Drafting to see and hear Jane talk about Rosemany and the gift she made for her.

The recipe below is one that Rosemary created and shared with Jane. Anyone who grows rhubarb knows that when it grows in abundance in your garden – you are looking for different ways to use it. We originally shared this recipe in a newsletter on April 12, 2016, and thought it was time to share it again 😉

Rosemary’s  Rhubarb Muffins

One of the first things that burst forth in the spring is the old-fashioned staple … Rhubarb. It’s at home in many homestead gardens as it is in our kitchens. Rosemary has given us her delicious recipe for Rhubarb Muffins. Enjoy!

2.5 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups chopped rhubarb
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Topping (set aside)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare your muffin tins.

Mix all the wet ingredients, including the sugar together in a bowl. Next, mix the dry ingredients together so they are well distributed. Incorporate the wet ingredients.

Add chopped rhubarb to the mixture. In a separate bowl, mix your melted butter and sugar for the topping. Add batter to your tins, sprinkle with topping and bake for about 20 minutes. Then, grab your butter, sit back, and enjoy!

Have we told you how much we love weaving with our 40/2 linen?

Unfortunately, due to the rising cost of producing this fabulous yarn, the price per cone will increase on April 12th. However … you can still purchase cones and/or your favourite kits using our 40/2 linen at today’s prices until then! Stock up at the current price while you can…

Signs of Spring!

Can you imagine a scarf woven out of these wonderful colours which remind us of Easter and Spring that is just around the corner? Such a soft blend of colours to be wrapped in as we move from the cold, wet months of winter into inspiring spring!

Imagine the warmth of the scarf you could create with Zephyr Wool/Silk as the warp and the weft featuring silk highlights of Old Man’s Beard, Natural, Princess Pamuk and Margaretta Violetta! We’d love to see what you create with these colours! It’s the perfect project to say goodbye to the month that came in like a Lion and hopefully goes out like a Lamb 😉

A Few Staff’s Favourite Kits

What happens when you ask your staff, as we did, what their favourite kits were. Well – for people that are constantly surrounded by the kits and the possibilities – it’s a difficult question to answer! So, “here are a few of our favourite things” and be thankful we’re not pretending to be Julie Andrews and 🎶 singing this newsletter to you 🎶

Delphinium Bouclé Tea Towel Kit

As a beginner weaver, “office” Sharon loved how quickly these towels wove up! This kit can also be a jumping-off point giving you the option to create your design based on Jane’s ideas in the draft. Sharon has given most of the towels away to friends and family.

“It’s so heartwarming to see one of my handmade towels displayed as a table runner, or an ornamental side table placemat. I am told they are too pretty to use as tea towels! ❤️”


Twill & Grace Placemats

Twill & Grace Placemats are Elizabeth’s favourite because they can easily be woven in so many different colours. A fun trick is to make the warp twice as long and then swap out the coloured selvedge threads after the first set, then weave a completely different colour for the second set.

“I have fond memories of my daughter helping me finish these placemats.”


Ruckle Beach Wrap

Sandra has woven this kit a couple of times – and every time she wears it, another member of her family starts craving one of their own! She has woven them choosing the favourite colour of the recipients.  

“A third wrap project is heading to the loom soon for two family members who have moved across the country and can use an extra hug from me in the form of a wrap ;-)”


Tuscan Twill Towel Kit

This kit is definitely a ‘staff favourite’! These eye-catching towels were designed by Susan Brown…Jane’s first (and longest) employee. JST’s “second” Sharon…Jane’s newest employee, who also doubles as JST’s new silk dyer and is a new weaver – wove the samples! If “new weaver” Sharon could weave them – so can you!


From Our Inbox

The following just popped into our Inbox from Chris in Delaware, USA and we loved seeing our Monk’s Belt placemats woven in a bright, cheery colourway that would be perfect anywhere – especially near a beach. Thank you for sharing, Chris. 

Jane and gang,

I love your newsletters! I have been a part of School of Weaving for so many years now, and am an enthusiastic student! Always willing to learn more. Thanks for this email suggesting color changes. Attached is a photo of a color change that I did to the Season 7 Episode 3 – Monks Belt with Color and Weave. I live at the beach in Delaware and needed a little bit more “pop” than what was in the lesson. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

You guys are a huge part of my weaving life. Thanks for all you do!!!

Chris


School of Weaving Subscribers

Our Monk’s Belt episode in Season 7 – Episode 3 took what we learned in Season 6, challenged what we had woven and started to ask “what if”… What would happen if we overlayed Colour & Weave sequences on Monk’s Belt? How can we challenge our ideas around Monk’s Belt treadling and balance? How can we weave super thick placemats with only 2 shuttles or…how we can weave lovely drape into scarves on the same warp, without changing the sett? Check out how we did it all by clicking on the Monk’s Belt episode button below.


Want to weave the Monk’s Belt Kit?

These kits are in stock! Each kit includes weaving instructions (including draft) and 1 cone each of 8/2 cotton in Ivory and Dark Brown and 1 cone each of 8/4 cotton in Ivory and Dark Brown.

We always look forward to emails showing us what you are creating! This email was no exception and came from Sivia Harding of Oregon. We were thrilled to see what she had woven after waiting patiently for 9 months to be able to weave again! Her generosity with her Collapse Weave scarves was wonderful considering what she had to get through to weave them. ❤️

Hi Jane and crew,

I thought I would send you photos of some collapse weave scarves that just came off the loom recently, my first attempt at this technique. I’m proud to have finished them finally, after waiting nine months for my right foot to heal sufficiently to treadle my loom after an injury and subsequent surgery. The incentive was to produce an item for a charity auction at a fiber event, Red Alder in Tacoma, WA. I’m thrilled with the result and I know I’ll be doing more collapse weave! I love playing at the loom with this structure.

One of the scarves has been donated to the charity auction. I really enjoyed wearing the other two and had lots of comments from people about them! Mostly… “Did you weave that yourself?” I had to hold myself back from telling them how very, very easy these are to weave!!

Best wishes to you all

About Sivia’s scarves: The “shrinker” warp stripes were 18/2 Zephyr yarn. The silk warp was old mystery yarn from stash, hand-painted lace-weight silk knitting yarn close to a 20/2 weight. Weft was similar, with the addition of JST’s 2/30 silk.


David and Spring looms are in stock and ready to ship to you!
