Valley Yarns 40th Anniversary 08 WEBS is Forty Tapestry (Free)

The WEBS is Forty Tapestry was designed by Micala Sidore to celebrate WEBS' 40th Anniversary. This free weaving draft is less a structured set of patterned instructions and more of a thoughtful discussion on words, their meaning, and how to use them to fill the woven canvas you will create. Using words as design elements in your tapestry gives you freedom to express yourself in many ways, and the look of the tapestry, the words chosen, the "font" created, and the colors can all lend additional meaning to your work.The designer chose to weave the word "forty", but your tapestry can be any word, number or symbol that is meaningful to you.
