Overshot is part of our history as weavers. It served as a structure for coverlets in Colonial times, and present weavers still enjoy it. In fact, weowe the resurgence of overshot to Mary Miegs Atwater, almost 100 yearsago.But most of us don’t want to simply duplicate what has been done, wewant to make it our own. In the class, we will work on traditional overshotin the spirit of pioneer weavers for our first 2 classes, learning how ourancestors wove it. Then we end the class with 2 days of weaving “overthe top”, with suggestions from the instructor.The class will be offered online through Zoom.
