Time flies, and sometimes, we don't realize that our skills have improved in the meantime. Recently, while browsing through old Handwoven issues, designer Susan A. Bloomfield found an article from 1987 about a monk's belt tablecloth. She believes she skipped it as a beginning weaver, thinking it was too complex for her. Susan wove 4-shaft towels in honor of the tablecloth from 1987, which itself was based on a small sample from the 1920s or 1930s.
