Gee's Bend Towels Kit

For generations the African American quilters of Gee's Bend, Alabama have created uniquely beautiful quilts that are famous the world around. Scholars, art historians, photographers, and other experts have described the Gee's Bend quilts variously as stunning, highly inventive, bold, and unconventional. This set of four towels by Sarah H. Jackson were inspired by the Gee's Bend quilt Bars and Stringpieced Columns, by Jessie T. Pettway, and uses the same palette of warm red, bright pink, orange, and yellow, with a cool touch of navy blue. Woven in bright and durable 8/2 cotton, these towels will let you bring a bit of Gee's Bend history to your loom.

The Gee's Bend Towels kit makes four different 4-shaft turned-taqueté towels measuring 16" x 23" each, after wet-finishing and hemming. To weave the towels you will need a 4-shaft loom with a 20" weaving width, a 10-dent reed, and a shuttle with a bobbin. This project is appropriate for advanced beginners, intermediate, and advanced weavers.
