A Different Kind of Table Runner

This summer has been the season for table runners! 

Earlier this summer I taught a class on weaving fabric strip table runners at Calico Cow Quilt Shop in Roswell. After showing off my finished project to Kathie Bryant, the owner of The Stitching Post in Ruidoso, we decided to offer a table runner class at her store as well. 

Since The Stitching Post is a yarn shop, we thought a fabric strip class might pose a problem as there aren't any fabric options to choose from... or so we thought. 

Kathie came up with a new kind of yarn called "Tee Rags," which are narrow strips made of t-shirt material. 

I tested the Tee Rags on a sample piece a few weeks ago and was pleased to bring the new table runner weaving class to Ruidoso. 

Everyone was thrilled to use the Tee Rags instead of cutting fabric strips and the final products all turned out beautifully. 



If you are interested in holding a table runner class at your yarn or fabric store, please email me for more information.

  2. Thanks so much, Catherine! Everyone did such a great job. Had a fun summer teaching in Ruidoso. I'd love to see a photo of your dishes with your new table runner on my Facebook page.
