What are you most proud of? I really love the twill fabric! And I'm proud that I managed to get the whole thing done in time. ;)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sample sample sample! Try some variations you're not planning to use, just to see what they'll do. It wasn't until after I'd woven all the fabric for the chair that I tried a straight draw treadling and realized that I liked the zigzags that made even better than the diamonds I'd woven. Also, unless you have experience, get a professional upholsterer to work with your fabric. I'd have been really disappointed to spend all the time and energy on making beautiful fabric only to mess it up with an amateur upholstery job.
