Showing Off

After we eat lunch on Tuesdays, we have a little Show & Tell time.  This gives us the opportunity to share our "at home" weaving with the group.
  Cindy's summer learning project was Doubleweave, and you can see her mats there in front of us.  Needless to say....she learned a lot!!!  We all thought they were beautiful!


   Cindy was a little shyer about showing them off!!!

  Ms. Ila has been weaving scarves for the Fall shows.  These wool and ribbon yarn scarves were a big hit.

  Linda has been busy this summer, too.  She's been playing with her Cricket loom, and brought these two scarves for us to see.  We had a lively discussion about the smaller rigid heddle looms, which can be used in the car (when you aren't the driver!)


 Tina brought her new spinning wheel (that she blogged about on Friday.)  I didn't get a picture of all the folks sitting down to spin on that cute little wheel, but it was a big hit.

    And, of course, there was business as usual!

Pat helped Carl feed the blue jeans through the rag cutter.....yes.....more blue jean rugs!  They are great sellers!

 Lanny worked on hemming the towels that he wove.  

  The "Lindas" went to work on their looms:  rugs and placemats!

  "Pretty Maids All In A Row."

They really did weave today....don't let this picture fool you!

   The "back to front" weaving lesson continues for Andy.  Just another tool for the tool box!

  Christy's scarf warp is weaving up like a charm.

Lots of sharing.
Lots of laughter.
A little weaving!!!!

Happy Weaving!
