This collection contains pages from a notebook for classes Textiles 341 and 342, Fabric Design and Analysis, taught by J.A. Porter. The notebook includes fabric samples, design sheets with drawn and colored weaving designs, and fabric analysis sheets containing numerical analysis of fabric. It also includes laboratory reports, dated October and November 1950, submitted by Paul L. Cabrey.

Paul L. Cabrey of Nabertha, Pa., was a student in the School of Textiles, North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering. Textiles 341 and 342, Fabric Design and Analysis, was a course required of juniors in textile manufacturing. The course covered construction of fancy weaves, fabrics backed with warp or filling, fabrics ornamented with extra warp or extra filling, regular and fancy piques, and methods of producing new designs. Students learned to analyze samples of fancy fabrics for design, drawing-in draft, reed plan and chain plan and to calculate how to reproduce fabrics when only a small sample was available.
