Weaver Notes

This towel represents the many towels I have woven on the straight 8-shaft twill threading using many tie-up and treadling variations in preparation for the MAFA class I am teaching. The threading offers so many options for weaving with the 8 shafts or 4 shafts tied-up and woven as block weaves. This threading offers the weaver so many options on a long warp saving yards of warp waste. There are myriad published options plus it is so easy to create new designs using a design program. I am charmed by the possibilities!
