weaver’s studio

MARYANNE MOODIE Maryanne is a fiber-obsessed maker from Australia who now resides in Brooklyn, New York City. She busily divides her time between designing and creating woven wall hangings, creating beginner’s weaving kits, and teaching sold-out workshops across the world. Maryanne is best known for applying unexpected color combinations to her nostalgic designs.

on-loom chain stitch:

1. Thread a large-eyed, blunt-tipped needle with 48" of Silver Wolf. 2. Hold the tail end at the selvedge edge with the needle under the warp. Make a loop of tail end of the yarn on the top of the warp and hold it down while you bring the needle up from below the warp, over 6 ends (1 doubled selvedge and 5 ends), and through the loop. Tuck the tail end into the loop at the edge, and pull the loop closed. Leave the tail end to be woven in. 3. Make another loop on top of the warp. Bring the needle back down in the same space you just came up from, but outside of the first loop, and then up again 5 ends over and through the second loop.…

summer plaid scarf

”Plaids are never boring; they offer up infinite variations,” says Cei. “Part of my fascination with plaids is the way the colors play against each other.

Originally published in Handwoven, May/June 2012. MATERIALS TECHNIQUE Plain weave with reverse soumak. EQUIPMENT Rigid-heddle loom, 10" weaving width; 12-dent rigid heddle; 3 boat shuttles or 3 stick shuttles.
