Something, anything using rags or fabric
The lighter colored rug is woven with strips of white sweatshirts and is inspired by former member and friend, Ray H. The darker, more multi-colored rug had some help from member Nancy W when Andrea snipped some warp ends while snipping the excess rag edges!
Rug and shoulder tote, both woven with hand-dyed sheet selvedges as the weft and an 8/4 cotton warp.
Both pieces woven in log cabin using fabric ripped into strips 20 years ago. Chris found a way to use the no-longer-quite-in-fashion colors of orange and gold so that they are beautiful even for today's palette.
Rag rug woven in red and green for a friend.
Pieces woven with blue and yellow donatetd stash fabric, cut in different directions (one lengthwise, one widthwise) in a reverse block twill. Paula used things she learned in a Jason Collingwood workshop, especially using a double warp thread to prevent weft floats. Warp is 8/5 linen in twill.
Woven using bias strips madae by hand from the green, gold, and blue fabric taken from the donated stash. Warp is 3/1 twill with tabby set at 24 epi.
Used fabric strips woven in and around a ribbed shell, then darts were pulled up to make the tight basket. Handles are covered with tightly wound 5/2 cotton.
