In honor of Handwoven’s thirtieth anniversary, we asked you, our readers to tell us which projects were your all-time favorites. This collection is the result. The survey told us, too, that you love household textiles best of all. A weaver could decorate an entire house with the projects presented here—curtains, towels, tablecloths, runners, pillows, seat cushions, throws, and even a colorful baby blanket! The one exception is a very clever article by Olive and Harry Linder giving four different ways to design a shaped shawl—including some unusual applications of doubleweave. This collection is rich in technique, too. You’ll learn to weave words in Atwater-Bronson lace, use name-drafting for overshot, design tartan plaids, create treadling orders for shadow weave and huck, and more!
