Help Needed!

Posted by on Aug 11, 2016 in News

Last weekend, I was at the Denver County Fair, and I’d LOVE to talk with the person who wove an 80″ x 80″ BLANKET from 400 Weave-it squares…. and seamed them together so well you almost couldn’t tell the blanket was made of many small units. I was utterly gobsmacked by the amount of work and skill involved in that project.
