Martha Benson and Laura Redford, authors of the book Ozark Coverlets, will lead this mini workshop on the patterns and designs in textile weaving.

Martha L. Benson has studied historic handweavers and textiles in Louisiana, Texas, and the antebellum South, and has led study groups on reproducing historic weaving patterns. Martha has written numerous articles for the Complex Weavers Journal on topics such as regional weaving in the South, Bateman Weave structures, and drawloom patterning.

Laura Lyon Redford has been involved with the Northwest Arkansas Handweavers Guild for many years, serving the organization as program chair, librarian, newsletter editor, and membership chair. Since 1992, Laura has taught classes in beginning and intermediate weaving, overshot theory, drafting and profile drafts, lace weaves, krokbragd, and cloth analysis.
