G & P's rug.

Today I was able to thread and start weaving a denim rag rug order. Love this old Villa Handcrafts loom. I learn something new about her every time I work on a different project. Today I figured out the best way (for now) to position myself for threading and sleying. Beautiful old maple and great craftsmanship. A joy and a pleasure to work on.

Change the look.

Today I' been using a different treadling pattern to create a whole new look in this overshot cloth. Cool.

UPDATED Mixer Art

Wasn't thrilled with the cloth I was making the first go-round so I switched up the threading and am now weaving a classic overshot. Now this is more like it! Image Love the texture. Image I'm going very Victorian here with the Bing Cherry over Natural. Image
