Weave Structures Study Group

The Weave Structures Study group first met in late summer 2019 and agreed upon the following (updated to current status)

  • We choose a different weave structure to study every four months, more or less often if circumstances/interest dictate.
  • We help each other, or bring in someone from the guild with more experience to help us if needed.
  • Each member chooses their own project and materials, and weave it during the study period.
  • We meet monthly to talk about challenges and what we were learning.

NOTE: not all completed projects are shown below!



We’re weaving comboweave in Spring 2023! Because of the timing of CNCH, we won’t be moving on to a new structure until September.

Beiderwand and Turned Beiderwand

We started Beiderwand in September 2022… We extended our time with the structure to encompass Turned Beiderwand when several of our members took Karen Donde’s Turned Beiderwand class.

Maggie’s Turned Beiderwand:

We ended our study of Deflected Double Weave in August ’22; the group spent longer with this due to CNCH.

Q2′ 2021’s structure is Overshot. We remarked that we’ve gone from  supplemental warp projects to  supplemental weft projects!

Ange’s two bedside table runners, 8/2 and 5/2 cotton.

Johanna’s runner:


Supplemental Warp

In Q1 2021, we chose supplemental warp and had Deb Essen talk to us about how to do it! She gave us a great presentation and the group left feeling like they could accomplish a project.  More than one of us in the group will be doing more supplemental warp projects! Here are some of the projects, zoom in to see details.

This green scarf was woven in bamboo by Kathy.






Table runner by Betsy, in 18/2 wool








A couple of runners by Joan. The first one is made from her sheep at Deer Hollow Farm! And the green one is a fingering weight wool.

Johanna’s new scarf

Ange made a sample of warpwise woven shibori in 8/2 tencel, dyed in Procion “Avocado”. Sample is ironed flat; apparent texture is due to how the dye struck the fabric.

Shadow Weave

In Q1 2020, we wove Shadow Weave.

Joan’s runner:

Johanna in a blouse made from her Shadow weave fabric:

Ange’s yardage in 20/2 cotton and a garage sale mystery fiber. Pattern was based on a woven piece that Johanna made many years ago.

Rep Weave

The members decided upon Rep Weave for the first weave structure! Projects were presented at the January 2020 Guild meeting.

This rug, woven by Johanna, is six feet long!
Joan purchased a kit, but then made it her own. These placemats are fabulous!
