Here's a shot of Tina with our students from Friday. It was so rewarding to see them gain confidence in their weaving, and share their excitement as the design began to take place on their mug rugs! Jane and Velma got four mug rugs woven during our class time.
After our class, we went over to the Heritage Center to visit the vendors. Of course, we stopped to visit with Carol Larsen of River's Edge Fiber Arts (found some lovely BFL superwash in a wine and navy colorway) and Peggy Whitted of Weaving Traditions. Peggy is my idol when it comes to overshot....she does such beautiful weaving. She had her Wolf Pup loaded to the gills with a towel warp. L O V E L Y!!!!
And, here's my great find for the day....kid mohair from Blue Goose Farms!!! I wandered into one of the vendor rooms, and met Nichol....which meant that she showed me her wonderful hanks of spun kid mohair. I've been looking for some wool to use for my mixed warp scarf, and here was the perfect weft.
It was 80 degrees outside, and I'm excited about WOOL????
I want to use the hand-spun corridale wool that Roxie sent me, along with the wool and mohair yarn I found at the yarn shop in Clinton.
Yummy Wool!!!! A fun project for a later date!
