Denise Kovnat and Eva Stossel - Turned Taqueté
The list of important contributors to the world of turned taqueté goes on. These two weavers are only a sample of the next generation who have explored turned taqueté through published blog writings, and postings of beautiful woven items. In particular, Kovnat and Stossel have also won awards, published through Complex Weavers Journal and taught workshops nationally.
From posts about Becker, Schlein, Stubenitsky, and Inouye, we have gained much about the characteristics of Jin or Turned Taqueté: the design carried by the warp threads, the tabby structure carried by the weft, the presence of echo threading and parallel threading, telescoping and digitizing and the use of network drafts. The last two weavers in this series share their recent explorations below:
