Description

Here’s your chance for a weaving made just for you! Deborah Chandler, long-time weaver, author, and one of WARP’s founders is offering to weave something of your choice for you. Could be placemats to match your dishes, a set of scarves to match your moods, a couch throw, yardage that you could sew into something, or whatever else you can think of within reason. Parameters: she has a 36” wide 8 harness loom. The yarn most available is 20/2 (fine) mercerized cotton in almost 100 colors, or 8/2 mercerized cotton in blue, brown, or cream. If you want some other yarn, you may need to provide it, as Guatemalan yarn options are very limited compared to the US, and even more so with COVID and no travel. Deborah is in Guatemala, but has a phone with a US phone number, so you can talk about your ideas until together you come up with something you like. Pictures here show a few of her more recent weavings, just to give you ideas. For more information contact info@weavearealpeace.org .
