Celebrate all things linen with us in our January/February issue of Handwoven. Deb Essen, Tom Knisely, and Madelyn van der Hoogt are a few of the expert weavers that have packed this issue with advice to help you handle linen without fear. This issue comes loaded with 10 projects to help you perfect your linen weaving. Classic designs like Kate Lange-McKibben’s curtains and Suzie Liles’s huck lace towels show off the shine and drape that have made linen a weaving staple for millennia. Meridith Entingh’s bright crackle runner and napkins and Susan Horton’s linen and silk shawl show how this ancient fiber suits a contemporary sensibility, and Sandra Hutton’s refined silk/ramie napkins give the idea of table “linens” a new twist. Deb Carpenter-Beck delves into the mystic origins of legendary Irish linen, and Marian Dahlberg shares clever drafts for adding plain-weave borders, selvedges, and hanging tabs to your twill fabrics. So let’s have fun with flax and weave worry-free!
