2008 Tea Towel Exchange
12/10/2008 
Lots of lovely towels to look at!
Carolyn Moore organized our Tea Towel Exchange. Each participant was allowed to weave up to two towels to submit for this "weave one, get one" exchange.

We had a few requirements:

1. Only natural fibers

2. Each towel must measure at least 20" wide and 30" long on the loom

3. Towel must be hand hemmed

4. A weaving record must be submitted for each towel

Everyone who participated got a folder with photos and drafts of all the towels, which were exchanged at our December 2008 meeting.

Please note: each of these photos shows an area of the towel that is 4.5" wide by 3" high. This should give you some idea of the scale of the yarn and pattern.
