A Whirlwind of a Day!

  YES....we have one week to get ready for Homecoming at the Museum of Appalachia!  Pat is getting tags on her items.

Behind Pat on the table are some donated items that have to be taken care of.....things come in during the week, you know!

 New weavers have lots of questions.

The Tools of the Trade loom is going home with its new owner:  Maggie!!!  First of all, the three bread cloths that Allan wove have to come off the loom, and the remaining warp needs to be tied off before we can fold up the loom.  

Meanwhile, Andy was weaving away on her warp.  She'll be ready to start weaving it back in next week to make her shawl.

  Just thought you'd want to see Eiko's cute tootsies socks!!!!

   Carl is finishing up the threading on the loom, and he's getting ready to tie it on the back beam.

  Meet Tim and Ellen!  They have brought the new (to us) 4 shaft Studio loom.  It used to belong to Karen (In the Woods) and it has come to Tennessee to live.  It is going in the space vacated by the Tools of the Trade.
  They insisted on helping to set it up, too!

   Eiko and Ms. Ila are weaving away on the Wolf Pups, and you can catch a glimpse of LaDonna working on the Triangle Loom.  Linda is making great progress on her project.

 Marie and Shirley are making great progress, too!  (Our new weavers are doing a great job working while there's so much going on!)

 Ms. Ila made us a Stack Cake!

And, there was very little left at the end of the day!

Carl finished threading and tying on, so Tina, Pat and I jumped in and starting winding on the warp.  He'll be ready to start weaving next week.

  Bonnie started a new shawl using a beautiful pink for the weft.  She's declared that this one might just be for HER!!!!!

Allan seems pleased with the warp that was on the Studio loom.  Wonder what he'll choose for weft for the first rug???? 

See.....it was a whirlwind of activity at the Center today!!!!

Happy Weaving!

Whew! It was quite a busy and noisy day, wasn't it.
So much to do and so little time!

Noisy. Yes. I think that everybody was talking at the same time. Lots of things going on.
