Fibonacci Fudge: Warp Stripe Design

Handweavers Guild of Connecticut, Hartford, CT

Saturday, September 15, 2018, 10—11:45 am

Leonardo Fibonacci, a 13th century Italian mathematician, left a sequence of numbers which has helped weavers and designers create successful stripe proportions.  But what happens if the number of warp ends for a project doesn't fit neatly into the Fibonacci number sequence?  Learn how a rep weaver discovered a way to make Fibonacci Fudge.  Following a slide lecture, weavers will practice the mathematics by making several warp stripe "wrappings".
