Jacquard weaving of grandma




I had opportunity to weave more with TC-1 jacquard loom. I love it! I have woven picture of my grandma. It will be one work in my exhibition in May. After couple weeks i can do more jacquard weaving. I can't wait. During this break of jacquard i will continue to unravell sheets.

Hello Kaisu, I am really enyoing your blog, on your other blog I saw the ragballs for ragweaving, since I am just a beginner at this, can you tell me how you do it? do you make rags by cutting stripes of fabric and do you sew those strips together? or don't you sew them and just attache them somehow in the loom?
I hope you want to answer my question since this is something I haven't found yet.
regards from Giny from the Netherlands.

Beautiful, intimate photographs. I love the details of the weave structure. I'm looking forward to seeing the piece in its entirety.

Hi Giny,
Thank you for your comment! When i weave a rug i don't saw those strips, i just cut those ends little bit thiner and i overlap them in shed and i continue weaving.

Thank you Alice also! I am happy you are interested in my work. This was my second time to make jacquard weaving and i am so fascinated about it. I want to learn it more and more and i want to work with jacquard after university also if i found opportunities...

Thanks Alice, I just found some old sheets to cut up, now I know I don''t have to sew them all together that is a lot less work!

Beautiful! I'm learning about the Jacquard Loom in one of my classes at Brigham Young University, so I really enjoyed seeing what you have done. Thank you!
