|Tina, Ray, Liz and Charlotte warped the looms for Kids' Camp.|
I bet you think that we just get together on Tuesdays and sit at our looms and just weave and weave........
You would be wrong! Sometimes we have days like that....but, not today!!!
When we left the Center last week, only one child had signed up for Kids' Camp on July 13th. Liz is in charge of the weaving segment of the camp, and we put off warping any looms until we found out if it would be canceled.
When we came in today, we found out that we have 7 (maybe 8) kids coming on Saturday!!!! That kicked everything into high gear, and the looms were pulled out to be warped. Pat took over for Charlotte after lunch to finish warping the last loom.
We're still working on Inkle bands for the key rings for next year's Convergence conference. Pearl found a spot to weave after lunch.
Polly dropped off a band that she had finished, and Connie and Dickie dropped by to get help to wind another Inkle warp.
Lou Ann is carefully threading her first warp. (She got distracted watching Tina warp a loom like a whirlwind, and we reminded her that she is only doing ONE thread at a time!)
Ms. Ila always has a few extra threads in her shawl warps that she can use as repair threads if needed. She takes time after each shawl is woven to make sure those threads are not getting tangled with the warp threads.
Peggy is still weaving on her warp.
Linda is going to rethread her towel warp when she finishes the one she is weaving now. There's still a lot of warp left on that loom, and it's time for a new design!
Anna is getting closer to the end of this scarf!
Take a look at the little Mexican gherkins that Linda grew! They look like wee watermelons, and taste like cucumbers!
Liz is just taking care of business.............
Guess who had a birthday on the 4th of July???
Happy Birthday, Betsy!!!!
We sure did enjoy your fruit pizza!!!!
Marie got the thread order ready to go......
never a dull moment...........
