40th Anniversary #10 Celebration Overshot Runner PDF
Accomplished weaver and long time friend of WEBS, Ute Bargmann, designed this Celebration Overshot Runner for Valley Yarns in honor of our 40th Anniversary. Worked in a stunning combination of white Valley Cotton 10/2 and deep red Valley Cotton 5/2 and designed for a 4 shaft loom, this is an overshot name draft derived from the phrase “WEBS - 40 Great Years for Weavers”.
