Anne Blinks Textile Study Collection

Catalog of Tablet Weaving Study Box
"Four Tablet Woven Bands"

The contents of this travel box were assembled based on a Black & White Photo of
four tablet woven bands taken in 1964.  We think Anne wove the bands during or
shortly after the year she and Lawrence lived in Cambridge, England, 1958-59.
