Pattie Graver's interest in the miniature overshot drafts of Bertha Gray Hayes began when Amanda Cutler posted a very modern-looking sample on the Weaving Today website. She was intrigued by the modern look, and she was off to my studio. She also found inspiration in the work of Susan Wilson who introduced her to the amazing world of treadling variations. Pattie learned that one could wring a lot out of a 4-shaft loom and that weave structures can be "pushed around."
