It is good news from Joan Horwich:
I was the moderator for a virtual MAFA class led by Mary Mandarino this past weekend. The class title was “making woven chenille”. Mary explained both how to create the chenille as well as how to weave a chenille rug. The chenille is woven in a plain weave structure using a variety of threads to make up the weft. After weaving the cloth, it is removed from the loom and cut into chenille strips. These strips are then used as the weft to create a beautiful lofty rug. I found this to be very interesting and something out of the ordinary. Hopefully, I will have a chance to weave a chenille rug in the near future.
