This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Summer Celebration Placemats or Runners that were designed for our June Weaving Challenge: Crammed Warp Structure Weaving.

Weave a set of summer placemats, perfect for a 4th of July picnic, summer barbecue, weekend brunch, or as a holiday runner to decorate your table.

Use the drop-down menu to choose our "4th of July" colorway or "Choose Your Own" colorway to weave a set in your favorite colors!

Please specify your color choices of Aurora Earth 8/2 Cottons in the comment box of the shopping cart if choosing your own colors.  You can choose two stripe colors and a third color for the accent stripes and weft.  I suggest using either white or natural for the accent stripes and weft so that the stripes really stand out.
