As an antidote to cabin fever, this issue of Handwoven celebrates national parks and museums. In it you’ll find 11 projects, including an almost pictorial rendition of Yellowstone’s Grand Prismatic Spring, a shawl with patterning that mimics the brickwork of the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, and a tote that uses antique map colors as its colorway. Learn about William the hippo, the unofficial mascot of the Met, and how Meg Stump created her own pin-loom William.

Discover an unusual clothing museum in Mexico, get tips for entering juried fiber shows, and meet Sister Parish, a designer considered to be the originator of American Country style. Two articles explore wefts that may be new to you: in his Notes from the Fell Tom Knisely experiments with string yarn, and in this issue’s Yarn Lab, Denise Bolger Kovnat weaves with energized yarns. If you sell your weaving, Deb Essen’s piece about how to price your work is a must-read, as is the Best Practices article about winding on and tensioning a warp, and if inconsistent tension is still your nemesis, you’ll find Sherrie Amada Miller’s Endnotes reassuring.
