Cathi Chung and Diane Smith from Just our Yarn will help us explore how the choice of weave structure combined with hand painted yarns can create extraordinarily magical results. Study the effects of hue, value, structure and thread size.

I won the WEBS weaving competition, with the red jacket I made at Daryl Lancaster’s workshop in Peter’s Valley last summer! If I felt like a 6-year-old with a gold star when I got into the finals — this was better than making the honor society!!!
The jacket is in tencel, and a design that some of you have seen before, based on the opening measures of Beethoven’s Pathetique Sonata. The red jacket I made at Daryl Lancaster’s Peters Valley Workshop won first place in the “clothing” category in the WEBS competition. The jacket is in a design I call “Basically Beethoven” and is inspired by the opening measures of the Pathetique Sonata. It’s an 8-shaft networked advancing twill in tencel.
