Belinda & Lori - "Block Weave" Class
Lori Zajac saw a sampler that I had created and wanted to make one too. We took one of my weaving books, “Handweaver’s Pattern Directory” by Anne Dixon and picked three weaves from the book. They were:
1 - “Overshot Annabel” - Page 114 - Patterns 1,2,3.
2 - “Monk’s Belt” - Page 98 - Patterns 1,2,3
3 - “Crackle” – Page 133 – Patterns 1,2,3
Belinda McClellan saw my sampler and wanted to take this class along with Lori. They had both taken classes with me before. The class was planned and they both wove beautiful samplers.
