Strips the Light Fantastic

All red weft. (top)
This is a Dimity draft I got when taking a class at John C Campbell Folk School way-way-way back in 2007.

Of course it will look a bit different once it is washed. The Dimity strips will show up better then.

I had received a Mearl K. Gable, II, Memorial Grant from Handweavers Guild of America to attend this week long class with Pam Howard and Barbara Miller Learning about 18th Century textiles. I keep going back to what I learned then and still love the drafts.
