Back to work!

Yes, the old girl is hard at work once again!  The new drawer arrived and with a little trimming will fit nicely.  I found more long bobbins online, and I also ordered a couple of spare belts for her too. 

I am using her to sew between the linen towels I brought home from the center.  I wanted to get the hang of treadling, and figure out how to change the stitch length.  All there is is a huge screw on the right hand side of the machine.  Anyway, she is really working out wonderfully. 

I was just about to plunge them in hot water when I remembered that I had used some blue and purple 8/4 to seperate some of the towels on the loom!  What was I thinking!  So I started cutting them apart and removing those threads.  I do NOT want any color release on my nice white linen towels!

I am also working on a class project sheet for the Basic Inkle Loom class that (Lou Ann and) I will be doing in the Spring in Townsend.  I still need to weave up a sample for the picture, and fine tune the teaser for their website.  Lou Ann is working up the information for the Basic Weaving class we will also offer. 

We are still working out the details!

Boredom is never a problem at my house!

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina

The sewing machine looks right at home in front of the window. Very nice.

That machine just belongs in your studio! I'm glad you were able to find spare bits and pieces!
