Cotton handtowels will be available at the Portland Handweavers Guild at Gathering of the Guilds this month at the Oregon Convention Center.
4 dishtowels just cut off the loom. Ready to be cut apart and hemmed, then washed and ironed. I hope to have 1 more group of 4 ready for the gathering of the guilds sale at the end of next month.
