It's Tuesday!

The center follows the Anderson County school system snow schedule. The schools were closed and the center was technically closed... but you just can't keep those weavers away!

One of the projects we are working on today is the repair of some rugs that a customer bought some 20 years ago!!!!

The rugs are in pretty good shape, but the fringes are in pretty bad shape. What to do?

The first thing Carol did was use her serger, to cut and bind the edges.

What we think we might do next week is use some denim to bind the hem. We will let you know how it goes.

Wally made his appearance today and slept most of the morning after greeting everyone of course.

I wanted however, to give you an idea what the real Wally is all about!

Happy Weaving, Tina

Wally was a true Helper Pup today! It was a good day of weaving & lively conversations!

Such a cute puppy! (And I always say that it's good that puppies are so cute since that first chewy year can be trying!)

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the rug fringe. I have a rug I purchased (not from you - no worries!) that has the same problem. I never really thought about fixing it, but it would like nicer!

The rugs are going to look great. It was a good day of conversation and weaving.

We're into continuing to learn and part of it, I think, is trying to figure out how to fix things. These rugs are in great shape for being 20 years old. She loves the rugs enough to let us try to cover the edges where the knots used to be. We've got a couple of ideas that we'll think about all week and work on next week!
It was a fun day! My family's a cat family but Wally sure is a sweetheart!
