Two beautiful samplers by Irene Dunn

Written by [email protected] on March 24, 2007 in Your Gallery

Two more wonderful samplers from the creative needle of Irene Dunn, here described in her own words.

"The sampler which I made for Marguerite and Malcolm I think is rather similar to the one I made for you, which can be viewed in the gallery on the main Renaissance web-site. Many of the patterns are similar but the wording comes from COLBY Averil-Samplers (published in the 1960's)"

Irene Dunn sampler

"The unframed sampler I am very pleased with. It is a 'band sampler', very popular in the 16-17th centuries. Called a band sampler as the patterns are worked across.

Anna chose to make hers in naturally dyed crewel wool in keeping with the embroidery she is working on.

Weaving with Renaissance Dyeing naturally dyed Crewel Wool

Written by [email protected] on March 24, 2007 in Your Gallery

While at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show, We were visited by one of this year's course participants, Christine Holman. She brought with her a beautiful blanket that she had woven with the Renaissance fine 2/24 wool she had dyed on the course with varying depths of indigo.

Here it is on her loom, she tied up 1300 ends and not one broke during the weaving process.

Christine's Weaving

One feel of this wonderful piece of weaving spurred fellow weavers to buy wool for their own projects. Thank you Christine, for sharing this with us all, also for the help ...
