I believe that the kitchen towel is the most undervalued textile in the home. We use them every day to tidy our work spaces, to dry our hands, to cover rising bowls of dough, or to line the bread basket. My towels are woven from unmercerized cottons, closely sett, and feature machine stitched hems for durability and a neat finish. My kitchen towels can be machine laundered and dried. A few of my designs can be found below:
Suitable for the dining table, sofa table, bureau, or end table, my handwoven tabletop runners and placemats are woven from 100% mercerized cottons. I am particularly fond of using overshot and “summer and winter” as weaving structures for these textiles. I finish my pieces by either handstitching the ends on the loom or handsewing the hems.
Scarves and Shawls
Scarf and shawl weaving is fun! I select the yarns for me wearables carefully depending on the desired characteristics: I use bamboo or Tencel for year-round accessory scarves; I favor locally spun wool for my winter-friendly shawls. Handwashing is recommended for all of my wearable pieces. A sampling of my work can be found below.
