"Beachwalk Jacket” woven by Beverly Martin of Duluth, MN received the Margaret Grant Award for Elegant Handwoven Fashion Fabric in the Fashion Show at the 2015 Midwest Weavers’ Conference held in St. Paul, MN, June 18-20.


Beverly used her handwoven twill fashion fabric of 10/2 tencel yarn to create the body of this stunning award-winning jacket and finished it beautifully with a hand-dyed silk lining. This exceptionally well woven and constructed garment impressed judge Liz Spear for the truly elegant fashion statement it conveyed.
