Helpful

Love the free patterns and tips for new weavers. I've been able to make the weekend rug kit - generous materials and I made 4 rugs with 2 kits. I have ordered cotton for dishtowels and several free patterns so I can get some practice. Warping longer than 2 yards seems difficult. Great tips on wet finishing, hemstitch. Good info on kits and patterns much appreciated by this beginner.

Great thread quality!

I have bought more than 10 threads , cotton and silk from Gist. The quality is wonderful, fast delivery and great selections to choose from! Highly recommend their products!

Fun kit

The Checks and Stripes tea towel kit was a fun weave. I am a new weaver and enjoyed the simplicity of the kit that is paired with the beautiful result. The colors played well with each other and I have gotten many complements on the finished project.

Lovely Towel

This is a lovely towel, but there is no draft, is it threaded 1,2,3,4? One thread per dent? Then treadled? As a new weaver this kind of information is very helpful.
