Three Scarves, One Threading

Opening the pleats to get a first glimpse of each scarf is always exciting.  This was the vertical stripe scarf.

Three very different looking scarves, all from the same warp and threading,… and a couple more to come before a new warp.

June 13th was our Art Gypsy show.  I invested in a new tent, tables, tablecloths, and took my wood sign with. Since it rained most of the day, the woven shibori screen spent the day under plastic.

Space on a table for a mirror (for trying on scarves), guest book, business cards, along with Northwoods Art Tour, Artistree Gallery, and Shuttle Works Studio brochures.  The columbine plant added a nice touch of color.

  1. Your scarves are stunning! I have not played with shibori in any of its forms, so the idea that you can actually plan your designs is amazing. And to see dragonflies emerge–wow! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thank you! I’m having a wonderful time with woven shibori and indigo dyeing. You do have some control over the design, but there are still unknowns, at least until you have more experience that I have so far. Opening the pieces up to see the result is amazing!
