Let it Snow! Drawloom Treasures

Let it snow indoors! New Christmas snowflake banners are suspended up high, above our kitchen counter, facing our open living room. The three mostly-blue banners hang in mid-air so they can be viewed from either side. These are lasting treasures from the drawloom that I can bring out year after year. They’ll never get old.

Making loops from a handwoven band for hanging the banners. First, I zigzag to secure ends, and then cut the strips apart.
Handwoven linen band is cut into segments.
Loops are machine-stitched to back of banner hem with two rows of straight basting stitches (easy to remove later).

Christmas is new every year. There are new sights and sounds that add to the season. The message of Christmas is the same as always, though, that God loved us in this way—he sent his Son Jesus to be born into our world so that whoever believes in him may be born into God’s family. The newness is in God’s mercy, new every morning.

Ready for display!

Raise banners of joy to celebrate. Glory to the newborn King.

Merry Christmas!

May you celebrate from the heart.

Glad tidings of Christ’s birth,

      Hallo Angela, Danke! Fröhliche Weihnachten!

  1. These are wonderful! I don’t have a drawloom, just a 4-harness, but they inspired me to think about doing some banners in “Star of Bethlehem” overshot pattern. Merry Christmas!

    1. Hi Jean, 4 shafts are just right for “Star of Bethlehem” banners! I hope that works out for you. They’ll be beautiful!

      Merry Christmas!

  2. These are gorgeous- Merry Christmas! I’m just learning to weave on my Julia drawloom and I’m inspired by these beautiful panels!

  3. Karen, As this year is coming to a close, I just wanted to thank you again for the little tip you gave me to use a spare heddle to quickly tie up my harnesses. You made my weaving year with that one. Again, Merry Christmas. Looking forward to a new year of your blog and a lot of weaving.
