Sunny Tuesday

  I always feel like I have failed in capturing the total atmosphere on Tuesdays at the Center.  But, I do try to get quick snapshots of the weavers doing just what weavers do.  We don't just weave while we're there, nor do we just socialize.  Most of the time, it's a combination of the two.
  Carl is getting ready to re-weave some rugs brought to us by folks who don't want to give the rugs up just yet.  So, after the rugs have been washed and measured, we take them apart so the weft can be used again.  Carl and Allen tag-teamed this old rug....Carl wound up the weft while Allan raveled it.  That was just the first of many for the new warp.

While Carl was busy with the weft, Tina was busy on the warping mill winding the new rug warp for the barn loom.  She split the warp into two sections, and Carl got that sleyed in the reed by this afternoon.

  Next week, she'll be back on the mill finishing up the bouts for the towel warp.

  ......it makes ME dizzy!!!!

Linda and Marie were hard at work on their place mat warps.  Linda is really close to the end of that warp that Carol put on in November for the Foothills show.  We'll be cutting that off next week for sure!!!!  Marie had to cut some more strips to finish up her run of red mats.  The cloth beam is getting pretty full, so we might cut those off and hem them next week.  Then they'll be ready to wet finish before going upstairs.


 Roz worked on the black place mat warp.  This gives her the chance to work on a big floor loom instead of the table looms for a little bit.

  Bonnie stayed busy sleying the reed on her project....she warps front to back!!!

Judy got some time in on her warp, too.   Betsy threaded her place mat warp...don't you just love the colors????

Margi was able to be with us today....she's been weaving with her kids at home, too!!!  We love those little weavers!!!

  Congratulations, Marie!
She wove some yardage (her first big project at home) to use for a vest.

They learn to weave....and they're off and running on their own!!!

Another lovely Tuesday (sunny, yet windy) to be at the Center.

Happy Weaving!

I did get the heddles threaded before I had to leave. Next week is time to wind onto the back beam.
