Fabulous Fringes

About class

Fabulous Fringes

Come and learn how to weave a wide variety of fancy fringes used by the early coverlet weavers. The 19th century weavers did not leave instructions for their fringes. Thankfully, we do have their extant coverlets to analyze and decipher. Gay has done the analytical work, so you can learn how to weave these intriguing fringes for your own weaving. You will learn how to take stripes of warp separated by spaces and manipulate the weft to form unusual fringe. In addition, you will learn how to downsize several of the trimmings to use for smaller weaving. You will also weave tape fringe and fringe for your overshot projects. Join Gay to explore the world of fabulous fringe.
