About class

The early settlers concerned themselves first with clothing, then with bed coverings and eventually toweling and table linens. We will weave samples of typical 18th c. domestically produced weaving: checked cotton toweling, linen napery, linsey-woolsey, overshot, Venetian carpeting and wool blanketing. A slide lecture on domestic hand weaving and details of several antique textile collections will be included. Simple finishing techniques will be discussed.

3 day Round Robin class: weave structures, history, finishing & simple machine sewing.

All materials included with your tuition.
