Kristi Chapman

I learned to weave at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts after I retired. Since then I have been furnishing the homes of all my family and friends with rugs, dishtowels, placemats, and napkins. I am grateful to my local weavers guild and to MLH for inspiration, guidance, and very welcome deadlines. I am also the librarian for our guild, so I can fondle over 600 fiber-related books on my basement shelves, perfect pandemic companions.

Towel Two

This is one of eight towels woven from a warp of parallel threaded blue and white ends. I wanted to follow up on an excellent workshop by Robyn Spady at the 2017 MLH conference. We explored various weaving techniques possible with this M&W threading. This is a twill treadling using a weft in a third color. I wove three more towels like this, each in a different weft color.
