Weavolution

Weavolution


Weavolution is a net working site for weavers that just passed it's 6 month birthday. The developers have been working hard to get the site functional and it has quite a few resources of value to weavers.

One of the things that have been taking place are Weave-Alongs or WAL for short. The latest is based on an article published in WeaveZine (http://weavezine.com )





Rosepath is an extended point twill that can be woven overshot style to make small motifs such as flowers, or if you squint really hard, you might be able to make out the blue butterflies hovering above the flower garden in the top towel. :)

If you haven't checked Weavolution out lately, you might find something of interest. Bonnie Datta has been posting about Norway Selvedges - a technique of particular interest for weft faced rug weavers - in the public Weaving forum under the topic Selvedges.

Congratulations on being the WAL poster girl! Those are lovely tea towels - nicest use of rosepath I've seen in a long while.

Hi Sandra,

I had fun designing the motifs. :) Looks like you're getting serious with the Jacquard.

Cheers,
Laura
