  • Instructions

Sometimes when these placemats are woven on lightweight looms, you may have sheds that don’t come out as clear as we would like.  To help avoid this, use a lift plan and raise each harness separately.  Click here for a downloadable lift plan.  If you have purchased the kit after August 19, 2023, this lift plan will be included in the instructions.

These placemats were designed by Cynthia Newman, one of our Master Weavers!
