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 👏👏👏

Greetings!

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
