The Little Loomhouse presents our annual Women’s History Exhibit

Rose Pero & The Cross Country Weavers 





From the collection of Rose Pero, a first public glance at some of these weaving projects dating 1960 through 1971. The Cross Country Weavers Guild  was founded to act as a study group, so each member could develop their own knowledge, ability, and accrue a collection of samples. Members attended national weaving symposiums and participated in an annual  traveling exhibition. Projects included 3-harness weaving (’60-’61), crackle weave (’61-’62), Huck (’62-’63), 8-harness weaving (’63-’64), double weave (’64-’65), undulating weft (’65-’66), surface interest (’66-’67), black & white shadow weave (’67-’68), surface interest revisited (’68-’69), point threading drafts (’69-’70), and point threading drafts for intended use (’70-71′).

Exhibition runs March 6- April 3

Gallery Hrs: Tues – Fri 10 am -3 pm & Sat 11 am – 4 pm
