In the works

30 03 2010

The studio is very quiet right now, with a small weaving group. Let’s look at some of the cool stuff.

Marybeth's dummy warped

Betsy and Ginger and I are warping up for shawls. I’m working on a raw silk warp, with this funky weft. I woven a nursing shawl out of this warp many years ago, and sold it! Darn. Then I couldn’t find the yarn anywhere in the US, so I was really thrilled when I got a large cone of it when I bought a used loom. Whew.

Betsy will be working with cria yarn, and we’ll just have to see Ginger’s warp/weaving.





Excellent, 4 harness table loom for sale

30 03 2010

I have a 4 harness table loom for sale. It is a folding Dorothy Leclerc and currently has a piece on it, which was being worked on a month ago. It is in great condition, but I need room more than loom. This loom was being held as ‘sold’, but I can’t get a response from the buyer any more. So, here it is!

$250.00





Yay, Yay, Yay – studio is more manageable;0)

Well, several looms, a bench, a big tub, and a storage tower moved out today. The studio is becoming manageable again;0)  Sunday weaving classes are from 1:00 – 3:30. and there are openings. Call me.

Oh, and the rug-felting class in Mathews was AWESOME! I’ll post pics when they are sent to me.
