Yer Granny’s Overshot – with Janet Dawson – March 28 & 29, 2020
This round robin workshop will cover overshot basics like identifying blocks, tromp-as-writ, star vs. rose fashion, and opposites. With that foundation, we’ll move beyond traditional patterns and treadling to variations like Italian, flamepoint, swivel, petit point, shadow, treadled as lace, and more. If time allows, we’ll also look at name drafting and other methods of designing original overshot patterns for four shafts.
The cost of our comprehensive overshot workshop includes pre-wound warps and weft, as well as substantial handouts.
Is anyone planning to attend MLH in Holland, MI this year? The conference is May 30-June 4th. I just booked a room at Haworth Inn to avoid all the dorm craziness. Plus it has AC, continental breakfast, parking, etc. The cost per person (two queen beds) is approx the same as the dorms and much nicer! I’m looking for a roommate! Please contact me at (216)299-0676. Registration for MLH begins January 7th.
I will be out of the country Jan 17- 24 so leave a message on my home phone (440)473-2244 and I’ll return it when I get back.
