Knotted-Pile Weaving – Sara Lamb

Escape the dreary fall days with visions of brightly painted middle-eastern bazaars. This month we talk about weaving knotted pile rugs. The inspirational Sara Lamb talks about using color in weaving and her latest passion for knotted-pile weaving. We review an instructional video Cut-Pile Rug Weaving with Arlo Duker. In the swatch of the day, I describe learning pile weaving from Judith MacKenzie McCuin. And finally, the ending essay: Weaving fast; weaving slow.
