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.
Scarf weaving is fun! I prefer to use fine, lightweight yarns in my wearables as I find that heavy yarns such as chenilles and some wools can be fatiguing on the body. Tencel, bamboo, silk, and alpaca are my favorite yarns for wearables. My scarves feature bright colors and defined designs. Handwashing is recommended for all of my wearable pieces. A sampling of my work can be found below.
