We knew it was coming, so last week we put in a huge yarn order of 8/4 carpet warp to fuel the looms. We ordered as a group for the Tuesday Weavers, and also, if anyone wants to order some, they are welcome to. We have to get a certain number of cones of yarn to get the discount. The big box on the left goes to the Tuesday Weavers. You can also see how full the box is below.
It took me several trips with my basket to empty that box! The colors are wonderful, even though I was part of the ordering process, I still love to see the order come in!
The shelves are now fully loaded, extra orders disbursed to those who ordered them and the proper persons have been reimbursed. Whew, it was wild for a moment there!
Now, let's see what is going on in the rest of the room.
Shirley and Barbara are working hard to make sure there are enough heddles on the Baby Wolf to thread this towel warp.
After Ann had finished with the warping mill, I got on there and wound the first of 12 bouts to put on the larger Macomber we got before Christmas. This too will be a Hand Towel warp.
Carol, spent the day with a couple of new students. Margi had taken her recent class, and was looking for some hands on experience.
By the end of the day they both had their warps wound on the table looms, and next week they will be threading their projects.
As you can see we hit the ground running! I somehow missed getting pictures of, Ms. Ila, Eiko and Lanny. The girls were working hard on their scarves, and Lanny is working on some Hand towels using variegated cotton flake for both the warp and weft! We will have to check on them next week!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
