Five typewritten pages show 100 treadling variations that can be used for four shaft plain or twill threadings. This was part of a group project of the Twin City Weavers' Guild. The 5 accompanying swatches (17cm wide) woven by Hilma Berglund, use cotton carpet warp for both warp and weft demonstrate most of these possibilities. New labels are attached to replace original cellophane tape labels. Note to the text explains her numbering system. The information about the fifth sample is handwritten on cardboard. Scans of the first 4 swatches have the long side folded to show the reverse side of the weaving.

Drafts are presented on a sheet of 18cm by 11cm notebook paper. The title "Two-Color Threadings (Atwater bulletin February 1947)" is typewritten. Five drafts, hand-drawn on graph paper, are glued to the sheet. Treadling order is typed below each draft. Three swatches, woven by Hilma Berglund using cotton carpet warp for both warp and weft, show color and weave variations. Swatch A (labeled using the blank from the side of a sheet of stamps) follows the draft. Swatch B has two variations;, the draft B treadling and the draft D treadling. Swatch C has three sections: light weft, dark weft, and light and dark weft alternating. The first 2 sections have treadling variations.
Two swatches woven in cotton threads and draft mounted on heavy paper. The swatches show several treadling variations. The swatches illustrate warp patterning with thick and thin threads. The swatches are 16 x 8 cm and 19.5 x 7.7 cm.
Two swatches were woven by Hilma Berglund, on cotton warps with linen wefts. The first swatch (17cm x27.5cm) shows four variations of overshot: ordinary overshot, overshot in summer and winter/ spacing, Italian treadling and sunlight and shadow. Handwritten paper labels are sewn to the back of the swatch. The second (4cm x 38cm) is Bronson Lace. A handwritten draft is sewn to the back of the swatch. A draft, handwritten on graph paper, shows the overshot threading and treadling variations, and Bronson lace threading and treadling.spacing, Italian treadling, sunlight and shadow
