Instead of samples, we wove mug rugs. What a great gift or sales item. (The 8/2 cotton “rugs” are machine wash and dryable.) I was delighted with the outcome of my learning to thread the heddles from a pattern (rosepath) and to learn treadling patterns. You may notice that there is a zig zag in the pattern. When I “oopsed” by accidently repeating a treadling out of order, I just repeated the “oops” and made it part of my pattern. I have a lot of experience re-cooping “oopses”. (LOL) While we got to take ours home, the Steacoah Weavers make and then sell their “mug rugs” in the fall at the heritage festival.
