TIPS FOR COL­LECT­ING TEXTILES FROM DEN­NIS JUNE OF DEN­NIS JUNE GALLERY

Native American Art - - TEXTILES -

Look for straight edges and square cor­ners, con­sis­tent through­out.

Weav­ings should lie flat. Some­times the sel­vage will be pulled too tight, or the yarn may mi­grate slightly, but can be loos­ened at the cor­ners.

Pat­terns should be cen­tered, typ­i­cally ver­ti­cally. They should not jump about or mi­grate across warps.

Col­ors should be con­sis­tent through­out and not change hue mid­stream.

Oc­ca­sion­ally, mis­takes in pat­tern assem­bly may oc­cur and, un­less a ma­jor dis­trac­tion, should be con­sid­ered part of the hand­made charm
