Design styles come and go but Mid-Century Modern design, also known as MCM, has stood the test of time. MCM is a style that feels at once nostalgic and brand-new. The 11 projects in the March/April 2021 issue of Handwoven evoke that feeling and explore MCM design through iconic color combinations and weave structures that feel timeless. Three of the articles in the issue are about lesser-known weaving techniques: doup leno, double corduroy, and a method for weaving 5-shaft patterns on 4-shaft looms. In addition to the Yarn Lab, this time by Jenny Sennott, about sampling with stonewashed cottons on three different looms types, there is also a swatch collection of fabrics for the home in MCM style by Sharon Alderman. Miriam Parkman writes about the iconic Swedish handwoven garment designer, Ebba von Eckermann, and Tom Knisley reports on a set of towels he wove out of paper, and then reminisces about paper dresses of the 1960s. The Stepping Up article is about a mentorship program held at the John C. Campbell school, and the issue finishes up with an Endnotes article by Miriam Parkman about the continued influence of MCM design.
