Here is an array of towels woven in 10/2 mercerized cotton using my Woven Words technique. Mostly I weave towels as gifts. From the bottom up we have: Tess Archer (celebrating the birth of my grand niece); Matt & Marla ( celebrating cousin Matt's marriage to Marla); Virginia (a fund raising project for a Virginia Harvey video produced by the Northwest Designer Craftsmen Living Treasures Video Project; alphabet sampler (just for fun); Paper Towels ( in honor of Cis and Chic Paper, my favorite Aunt and Uncle); and Tarses Tartan (for my immediate family).
I don't have any of my older ikat towels, but I have started a new series ikat towels which will become the towels I will use in my ongoing towel exchange.
TOWEL EXCHANGE: It goes like this-- You send me a towel, and I will send you a towel. Above are some of the towels I have received. I use these towels all the time. I also have lots of handwoven napkins. Many of the towels and napkins are interchangeable. It is fun when I have folks over for dinner to have them select their napkin as no two are alike.
I don't use the Woven Words towels except as examples when I teach. Well, that's not completely true. I carry the Tarses towel in my purse for those times when I wish I had a towel with me.
