Jackie Wallace’s "Mama Loves to Read" (Part 2)

"My mother LOVES to read and loves bookmarks I've handwoven. Each bookmark has subtle treadling differences."

Bookmarks are 1 3/4" wide by 7 1/2 Long. They are done in goose eye twill using a 4-shaft loom. All are made with a 10/2 mercenized pearl cotten at 24 epi. The bookmarks all have an ivory warp and are finished with hemstitching to match the warp and a short fringe.

Jackie was given the Weaving for the Home Award by the Fort Worth Weavers guild for their 2011 show "Rhythm and Blues: The Music of the Loom."
