Tablerunner woven in the Shaker style

  • Sorry this item has been SOLD!
This week I wove Shaker style table runners. This one is woven with a cotto/linen yarn that gives it a crispness and flecks of tan in it that must be from the linen spun in the yarn.
The Shakers were recognized for their simple lines in blue. They would hang this style fabric up on the walls around their beds from Shaker pegs.
I use to do a craft show out at the Shaker Village in Pittsfield , MA every summer at the Hancock Shaker Village. Exhibitors would get a private tour and a Shaker meal put on by the foundation. It was a wonderful show and experience. The big old round barn was an inspiration to my husband when he built our new barn last year.
If you are wondering about the show it is not happening any more . They replaced it with "Contemporary" artists that do not make crafts related to the Shakers.

Dayliles Rag Rug Favorite right Now!

  • Daffodils are blooming now! This rug reminds me of spring flowers. I hand cut the material into strips before weaving them into this rag rug
24 x 40 it fits just right in any room. It can be gently machine washed and dried and it will give years of service. The ends are hemmed . colors are yellow, white and beige to gray .
A Maine staple rag rugs were woven out of all sorts of worn out clothing to create a colorful home interior . The frugal house wife let nothing go wasted.

Stain Glass Star

Lori Chesebro does wonderful stars to hang in the window.

I have several here at the Scottish Lion and Friends shop, red green blue yellow are the colors they come in. We will be opening for the season before you know it. You can stop by though . We hang the flag out on nice days while we create in our studios.
Where does the time go? Have a look at what Mark Chesebro has for paintings on I put his link on the side bar for you to view his work. They are paintings of the beautiful Pemaquid area. Pemaquid was settled very early on by English fishermen over here catching cod and then salting it down ,putting it in barrels and shipping it back to England
.Hence our town was named after Bristol, England.
