Name Drafting and Overshot

I have an idea for a new project. I am going to create a name draft using Overshot. I have a computer program (WeaveIt Pro) that will help me create this. I still have to use pencil and paper, but the computer helps a great deal.

I had such a fun time when I gave my lecture at the Ozarks Celebration Festival at Missouri State University (Springfield, MO), that I wanted to create something to remind me of the event. So I am using the words "Ozarks Celebration Festival". It will be a traditional four shaft overshot draft.

First I will create the draft. Decide the size of threads, color, and dimensions. Will I do a small table topper or a long table runner? Should it be a pillow? There are lots of decisions to be made when attempting to do a new project. Sometimes making the draft is the easy part!
