First Weave: 1999

My two older daughters made these in 1999 when they were 7 and 9 years old. For many of us, making potholders at school or summer camp was our first exposure to the concept of fabric. How small, seemingly fragile threads can combine to form strong durable materials. These two potholders have been used nearly ever day for the past 22 years they have many years go to.

It was quite a journey to this photo. I tried to get in touch with local hand weavers group for two weeks. They were covided out and did not want to help. So I ordered a square loom from Amazon so I could make one and put it in the picture, but Amazon pushed delivery out more than 4 days, so I had to cancel that and ended with just the potholders which have surely stood the test of time.

Assignment

Something a little tangible this week - Fabric- it's what we wear, it's how we express and depict ourselves to others, it's an extension of our personalities. From glitzy, glamourous evening wear to humble, utilitarian items like aprons, smocks, and boiler suits, this week's challenge encompasses textiles in all their shapes, colors, and forms. Fabrics are everywhere, not just clothing - flags, tablecloths, embroidered doilies, and what have you.... You can be as elaborate as a fashion photographer shooting in the wind, or give us something as simple as a macro photo of your bath towel threads. You can be humorous or grand. You got some nice wide options with this one. You can also always find ways to inject humor into your shoot - how many of us remember tying a sheet behind us and pretending to be a superhero?
