Handwoven Table Runner
57” by 13”
In the beginning
I start with cones of cotton thread or cotton and linen thread. Then I wind the thread onto a warping wheel. So I can thread it on to the loom.
After I have warped 312 threads. I chain those thread together to keep them organized and place them on lease sticks.
Then I lay the lease sticks across the front beam of the loom and now I am ready to start warping the loom.
Each of the 312 threads has to be threaded through the reed and then through the heddles. Now I'm ready to start weaving your table runner. Each table runner takes about an hour and a half to weave. When all the weaving is done I take off the runners from the loom and wash and dry them. Then each towel is hemmed and gets a label. Then they are ready for your home. Enjoy!
