Warp and Byte Designs - Cross Country Samples
Leslie Killeen - Handweaver, Durham, NC
Cross Country Weavers have been sharing samples since 1957. The membership stands at thirty weavers with vacancies being filled as needed from a waiting list. Each year a project is selected, often alternating between a technical project with an inspirational one. Samples are 6" accompanied with weaver draft sheets. Two extra samples are circulated in annual traveling notebooks.

Leslie was invited to join the Cross Country Weavers in 2000. Below are her samples linked to .pdf files of the drafts and supplementary information:
