Last week we wove up some drink coasters, and this week I’m showing you how to finish those coasters up with a cute fringe-y tassels.
The best part of this is we’re going to add the tassels while also securing our warp threads and tying off our weave, so our weave is finished up a bit quicker then if you secured your warp threads and then added the tassels after that. Continue Reading
You know what’s been missing this year? Weaver interviews! I really love doing those interviews and hearing how others approach weaving. I’m working on getting some more interviews together and will hopefully have some soon.
Currently I’m finding a lot of inspiration from my interview with the talented Kat Howard. Her approach to weaving is so artistic with a goal of telling a story through woven visuals. Continue Reading
I received a great question from a reader looking for what type of loom you could weave a coaster on. This is such a great question, because the answer is any loom you own! As long as your loom is larger then the size of the coaster you want to weave, you’re all set. Continue Reading
Don’t you just love how weaves look hanging from copper?! The shiny metal really compliments the softness of a weave. I knew right away that I wanted to hang my peachy-pink weave along weave from copper. The peach and copper colors look so nice together. Also the visual weight of the copper next to the airy weave is a great design compliment. Continue Reading

We’re almost ready to take our weave off the loom, but before we do that we’re going to clean up and finish our end threads. I know, this might be the worst part of weaving, but it will look really nice when we’re done! Find all the Weave Along Steps here. Continue Reading
I’m going to start this post out with some questions, because I would love to have an open discussion on this topic. How do you push yourself creatively when weaving? Is there a new style you’re trying out or maybe you’re trying to master just one style? For me I’ve found that I like to try a lot of different things and learn from each, which also means I don’t have a cohesive style. Continue Reading
In today’s weave along (previous weave along posts here), we are not so much weaving as tying our weft thread along the warp strings. This makes a really nice lacy pattern that I arched to give it more interest. After creating the arched row of knots, I added two more rows of knots that filled in the side gaps and staggered the knots so that the warp threads were separated differently between each row.
