Dish towels from the Weavers Guild of Minnesota
on view in the Open Book Commons, 2nd floor
More than 50 pieces made by members of the Weavers Guild represent the everyday kitchen towel. But they are also reflective of the skill, color play, and variety of techniques used to create them. The weavers used a variety of looms, including rigid heddle, multi-shaft floor looms and computer-assisted looms. Pictured, “Dots and Chains” by Ann Masemore, who says, “This is one of my favorite drafts. I’ve woven it in fifteen different color combinations.”
