8-year old spinning prodigy!!!!

25 02 2010

An 8 year old came into the studio the other day to learn to spin, and she blew me away. She was spinning like a top in 20 min! It was so impressive that I shot a quick video with my still camera. Here is the clip:

Weaving – after-school programs

24 02 2010

Here are some pics of an after-school program that I’m a part of through one of the art centers. We are weaving fabric to make drawstring bags. I love the kids, and check out the crazy, crazy shoes;0)

Table loom weaving class

18 02 2010

The Tues night class has become a table loom weaving class by default! Each person in the class is currently working on a table loom. This means they are able to take their work home week to week and plow through much more in a month than otherwise possible.  The class isn’t closed to floor loom weavers, it’s just the way this has worked out. There are openings in the class, in case you would like to join us. We meet on Tues nights from 6:30 – 9:00 pm. Because we lost so much time to bad weather, we are making up a week the last day of the month, Feb. 28 from 1:00-3:30. We don’t usually meet on Sunday, we have missed so much this month due to weather.

Here are pictures of what’s going on:

The Brown will be a scarf, and the blue is more of the ecclesiastic stole. It’s really coming along, as are these two weavers.

See you in the studio.


Philanthropic sewing

13 02 2010

Today, a second Saturday, we made dresses for the little girls who benefit from the mission in Kenya. We completed 3 dresses in Jan, and another 8 today! So we have completed 11 dresses altogether.  Hooray! Here are some pictures of our day:

Studio hours for Thurs 2/11 and Friday 2/12

10 02 2010

The studio will be open for regular studio hours on 2/11 and 2/12.  That means It opens at 9:30 on Thurs, and is closed at 2:30 on Thurs.  On Friday, it’s open from 9:30 – 5 pm, and I am teaching private lessons during most of those work hours. If you are looking for private weaving, spinning or felting lessons, I do have some private lesson slots open, and there are openings in the Tues. morning and in the Tues. evening classes.

Hope to see you in the studio.


Class IS meeting tomorrow 2/09/10

8 02 2010

As of now, Monday night, class is meeting tomorrow at 9:30 am.  Although the snow may begin during class, I don’t believe it will get so bad that we can’t get home. Besides, there are suffficient windows to see how bad the weather is.  Should we not be able to get to class tomorrow (I had not trouble getting there today), you all know that you are welcome another time during the week. From the looks of things, there will be a Mon or Wed night class beginning the week after the big snow…. So maybe 2/17.

See you in the am.
