Today was the day but when I woke up I heard rain - not misty rain but heavy, pounding rain. I checked weather.com before getting dressed and saw that the rain was supposed to be moving through. I decided to be optimistic and put on my work clothes. It rained most of the way there - but let up just as I was getting off the interstate. Obviously others were optimistic too - so we got to work.
|Tina packing up nasty insulation|
Not only did we need to move our yarn, loopers, freece, rovings, fabric and loom parts - we needed to remove the wet nasty insulation, and ceiling. Yuck!
|New to us weavers - Cindy and Christy - ask when do we get to weave?|
|My lovely pant legs - yes they went right into the laundry|
|All our stash in the new storage space|
Now we need to get the shelving up - so that we can get things put away in an orderly fashion. then we will know what we have. Oh and we need to move back all of the materials being stored at weavers homes. I do hope the new space is big enough!
|Empty wall in the new space - it won't be empty long|
We saved space along one wall so that Allen can get the first set of shelves in and we can begin the organizing. One it is all up on shelves it will be much better.

|Ila works on more mug rugs|
|I think Trudy is supervising - she was just glad to be out of the house|
|Bonnie works on her new warp|
|Aren't these going to be beautiful|
|Our newest weaver (Judy) threads her heddles - I promise I will slow down and introduce myself next time|
And speaking of moving.... there were some heavy negotiations going on about moving from one loom to another. Linda is going to pick up on Allen's place-mats. And Allen is going to start weaving Tina's bread cloths.
|Allen is sharing some of the looms idiosyncrasies|

It was a very busy day. Lots accomplished. And I think it is time to turn in - after I take my Aleve.
