American Woven Coverlets
A history of the American coverlet (bedspread) which was made from natural dyed, hand spun yarns and woven in the home. Carol Strickler examines this coveted household item which demonstrated the maker’s skills and was a sign of a woman’s domesticity and industry. These bedcoverings were a status symbol – the more elaborate the better!
The book features how to identify and care for this historical cloth, and includes motifs, drafts and weaving instructions for creating your own family heirloom.
