Program:  An Overview of Twill Structure
In the Nov/Dec 2013 HANDWOVEN magazine, Madelyn Van Der Hoogt says, “It is no exaggeration to say that twill is the most illustrious and versatile of weave structures.”  
We will discuss twill characteristics, threading twill, weaving twill, its variations, and its uses in weaving.  
Please bring…your weaving class sampler if you have one… items woven in twill … books with information about twills.
