Cotton Club

2015-07-01 16.42.31I have ordered a nice variety of colors in 8/2 cotton for weaving towels. I don’t have any specific structure in mind yet. A good twill is always nice, but there were some bumberet towels recently in Handwoven magazine that I really like. Bumberet is a new structure for me and I love playing with colors.  I can put a real variety of color in the warp, and weave with one color, changing for each towel.  One shuttle weave make that part go much faster.  I really need to make sure I don’t get carried away with too many colors in one warp though.

I will have to sit and play with the drafting software and will try to post some of my planning process as I go.  Hopefully I can get some woven and up for sale soon.

That reminds me I need to hem up the last towels I wove in cotton and linen and get them up for sale too.  I just need to find a place to set up the sewing machine and leave it out for a couple of days.

What's your story?
