NOBO Handweavers

If only I had one more color, one more shaft, one more treadle…

Guest Speaker Barbara Herbster (www.shuttlesong.com)
NOBO meeting Thursday January 26th 7pm

From Barbara Herbster:
If only I had one more color, one more shaft, one more
treadle… Well for once you will be completely satisfied with 4
shafts making tabby fabric. Some of the most interesting and
beautiful fabrics created have been in tabby structure. Think for a
minute about what basic elements can change to make tabby an
interesting fabric. Humm, there are quite a few! Now think what
extra elements can be added to tabby to make a more interesting and
complex textile. Quite a few more ideas come to mind? Come and
share ideas and I will share mine. I will come with a large pile of
my textiles and other examples.

Bring one beautiful example/picture of unusual, or not so unusual.
use of tabby with you to share. This can be hand woven or commercial
fabric or a picture.

    This sounds like great fun! I hope everyone does bring in a textile or
    picture to share. Even if we don’t have time, we can pile them all on
    the table and look at them.

    Barbara is a very talented master weaver. Those of you who don’t know
    her will enjoy meeting her. We are in for a treat!
