What Visitors See

Visitors to the shop upstairs can hear us downstairs!
We are NOT quiet!
We had several visitors that wandered down the steps to see what was going on, and here are some of things that they saw.
Dye Day results:  look at the colorful warps!!!!

   Tina brought Ms. Pat to spend the day with us.  After the grand tour, Ms. Pat took over cutting up some work shirts.  We'll put you to work!!!!

    Cindy brought her finished napkins....they are study in mixed twills!!!!!
Ann is through threading the heddles, and now she's pulling them through the reed.

  When Lanny throws the shuttle, he THROWS the shuttle!!!!
  I think I heard it hit the floor a couple of times today!!!!  He really gets into weaving!

Christy was hard at work on her Inkle loom.  (Be sure to click on the picture to see the beautiful design of her bookmark!)

Carl is working on another rug back on the barn loom.  Don't you just love the way that print fabric plays under the warp!!!

These are the stripes that Linda is adding to the place mats on her loom!

  Now that Andy has the tangles out of that warp, and it's safely threaded....weaving has begun!

  Allan is going to town on those bread cloths!

  Someone asked today, "What do you get out of this?"
Well, besides lots of weaving advice and ideas, we also get a lot of fiber friends.  Life is good!

Happy Weaving!

Oh my. What do we get out of this? We get to be with fellow weavers and have fun! We have lively conversations about lots of things like spinning, weaving and even farming! We aren't just weaving on Tuesdays we are getting physical and emotional therapy while spending tie with some pretty terrific friends!

I can't believe someone saw--and heard-- you all together, doing what you do on Tuesdays and had to ask that! Missed you guys! See you next Tuesday!

Goes with out saying. Just listen to all the chatter and the hum of all the looms. So relaxing. What we learn from each other, weaving or otherwise is priceless.
