From Our Inbox

And, at the end of this newsletter featuring the colour GREEN – the perfect email was waiting in our Inbox from Sivia Harding of Milwaukie, Oregon. Her photo shows us the beautiful Tea Towels she has woven, and that she can proudly hang in her kitchen on St. Patrick’s Day. Thank you so much for sharing, Sivia!
I fell in love with Turned Twill on 8 shafts after watching the lesson, and I took Jane’s sage advice on setting up with the intention of playing at the loom. I had so much fun playing with the warp face/weft face blocks and how the various weft patterns intersected with the threaded blocks. This was my first attempt, using 8/2 cotton at 20 epi. I got 10 towels out of that warp and I have another similar-length warp on the loom.
