Handwoven Christmas Ornament Exchange 1998

While Hilary Clinton asked weavers, knitters and artisans from the 50 states to contribute handmade Christmas ornaments for the White House Christmas tree, we hosted our own Christmas ornamentexchange for visitors to our website. Each participant wove 6 ornaments that will be distributed to other participants. Here are some of them.

Sandra Chahley had her first experience with double weave pickup technique using a pattern in Handwoven, Nov/Dec 1997. She used Curl Bros. 5/2 mercerized cotton, sett at 36 epi.
Janette Merriman made innovative use of plastic garbage bags, netting, and thrums in weaving these trees. The warp was 5/2 Pearl cotton, sett at 12 epi.
Beth Herity uses 3 mm polyester ribbon and triaial weave for these cards. Instructions by Mary T. Klotz can be found in Shuttle, Spindle, Dyepot, Spring 1991. Vol XXIII #2, pp. 16-17.
Rena Conrad’s overshot ornaments were based on Johann Schleelein’s pattern No. 123. Davison Handweavers Pattern Book, p. 131. Warp: 10/2 pearl cotton, weft: 5/2 pearl cotton, tabby: metallic thread.
This transparency ornament was made with hemp as warp and background weft. The star design uses 4/4 Foxfiber Green cotton.
