First Tuesday

Carl has been so busy since we had our warp dyeing day back at the end of October.  This is his rug he made from the dyed warp.  (I have my scarf in the raddle....guess that doesn't count!)

We have another Dye Day coming up on January 15th.  This should inspire the weavers!!!!

Carol and Pat are still working on the bags of woolen garments that were donated.  Right now they are taking them apart....later they will be cut into strips to use in rugs.

Yes, that's Ann's back!

Ann had some strips that came loose.  She sat down at the sewing machine and joined the strips using a smaller stitch set.   You can see her rug in the background on the loom. 

Blue jean rugs are always a big hit upstairs in the shop.

Lanny finished 60" on his scarf warp.  It looks great!

Allan is just about finished all the threading and he'll be ready to start weaving next week.  I can't wait to see what he uses for the weft on these rugs.

We left the Center early and went over to Pine Ridge Studio to have lunch with Linda.  She had "fresh from the oven" cookies waiting for us, along with a tour of the new space.  She and her family have worked very hard getting everything refinished and moved in!  It looks GREAT!  Watch her blog for more pictures.

Next Tuesday we'll have our Christmas Party (rescheduled because of the snow.)  We'll get to see all the mug rugs & mugs, as well as the challenge scarves.  I can hardly wait!!!

Happy Weaving.....

Carl, I LOVE your rug. It's beautiful. And what a wonderful group of productive weavers. I can feel the creativity just reading the blogs.
Thank you for an uplifting and inspiring blog in 2010 and can't wait to see what you all do in 2011!

Wow, Carl. That looks great!

I wish I could have been there today, but I had to pull the chuck wagon for DH and crew slaving on my barn. I will post pics tomorrow.

Like everyone else, I'm Wowed by Carl's rug. I love all of the photos and activities, except do you have to take pictures of cookies? I feel a late night splurge coming on! ~Marta
