Festive Runner Article

Last November I was approached by the Textile Directory to write and article about weaving a Festive Table Runner to appear in the December issue of their Newletter.

For one reason or another, I couldn't find the article when it appeared, but I found it today, 2 months after it was published! Better late than never.

So if you missed it, you can find it here and maybe buy the yarn from Colinette here. Then you can weave your own runner, on a simple rigid heddle loom, in time for next Christmas or another for another occasion, if green and red are not your colours! Colinette yarns are very forgiving if you are new to weaving and produce some stunning results, as seen on the righ. This simple scarf used Wigwam and Firecracker.

While you are on the Textile Directory website, have a good browse, it's packed full of useful articles and information about anything to do with textiles.

Thank you for the link for Collinette yarns. I bought a wonderful stole woven by a friend last year, plain weave with a gorgeous Collinette yarn in the warp. It's stunning.
