Taquete woven pineapples

 

Pineapples in Taquete by Becky Hilliard

 

Each meeting of the Seattle Weavers' Guild features a segment called "Hot Off the Loom". During this time members display and explain work they have recently done. In September, 2018, member Becky Hilliard spoke about two pieces she wove in taquete (a relative of Summer and Winter weave). This pineapple motif was woven on a hand painted warp of 10/2 tencel with an 8/2 tencel weft. Becky wove on a Compu Dobby loom using 34 shafts to create the pattern.
