Terrific Tuesday!


Hold Your Applause............

The Tuesday Weavers are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the Southeast Fiber Forum April 29-May 1, 2011, at Arrowmont School of Art and Craft in Gatlinburg, TN.

Maggie has stepped up as our fearless leader. After lunch today we brainstormed possible classes and vendors and goodies for the participants. Notable tapestry weaver, Tommye McClure Scanlin has already graciously agreed to teach a class!!! Yeah!!!!

Stay tuned for more details as they are available for:

Return to the Mountain of Fibers

(now you can applaud!)


On the weaving front, Pat cut off her rug warp today! The cloth beam was full (4 rugs were cut off a few weeks ago) and the back rod inched closer to the shafts. The next thing we knew, she brought the roll to the table. What an amazing sight to see those rugs displayed on the floor. They are truly works of art (and a great stash buster!!!)





And, now back to your regular weaving, my friends!

Great to see all those rugs come off the loom. I know that Pat was thrilled to see all her hard work layed out in front of us all.

Oh, LouAnn! Though, it could have been MUCH worse!

Is that a quilting frame hanging from the ceiling? (in the picture with the rugs rolled onto the floor) What's the story behind that?

Tina said...

Yes indeed Jenny, that is a quilting frame. The Quilters come on Wednesday.
