A Joint Wedding Present

A good family friend, our youngest son's best man was to be married, we wanted to give Jack and Hope something we had both made.

Sue set the loom up and produced a Table Setting 4 place mats and a table runner.
Warp and weft are of natural coloured linen set up in a colour and weave threading but using a thick and thin combination instead of contrasting colours to give a textured fabric. The patterning is subtle but also intriguing. The weaving was enjoyable and I would like to do a little more of this pattern and even try out some other colour and weave patterns though not in linen.




I turned NSW scented Rosewood handles for some untensiles, Salad servers, Bread knife, Cheese knife and a Cheese combo knife.
