Carl and Allan agreed to model them for us! Look at all the variations!!! Click on the picture so you can get a close up! What a talented group of weavers!
And, the mugs and mug rugs were unbelievable! Such a beautiful variety of techniques and colors.
Even our newest weaver joined in the challenge, and wove her mug rug without a loom!
There were lots of oooo's and ahhhh's.
All of that anticipation was worth it!
And....I would be remiss if I didn't include a picture of some of food we had for our potluck! This wasn't ALL the food....oh no.....the stove top was loaded down, too!
We got a lot of dyeing done, also....just so you know. I posted some of the pictures on the blog at the Clinch Valley Handweavers Guild.
And, now the new challenge goes out: BAMBOO Shawls/Wraps
We will be buying large cones of natural bamboo. Our challenge will be to design and weave a wrap/shawl. I think I can see some more warp dyeing going on!!!!!
