Old to New

One of these things is not like the other.

Can you tell which one?

4 pot holders woven on a standard pot holder loom.


You guessed!

The potholder on the bottom left was woven by one of my two daughters and is in daily use.

The other 3 potholders were made by my GD Awen. A great project for school holidays.





Visiting Grama and showing me what she had made so far.

Great weaving Awen!







Warping up with weaving chart to her left.









Awen finished weaving this potholder as we sat together working on our craft .
I remember making these as a child and teaching my children as well.


Nice to know my DD is passing on the traditions.






The potholder looms at my house.

Top left Awen's new RED plastic one the easiest to use.

Top right mine 55 years old the teeth are too close so I used to put the loops on every other spike.
Bottom row the DD's looms approx 30yrs old.

Three generations of craft tools for 3 generations of crafters.
