Just Another Tuesday???

 As our readers know, we often have donations from the families of weavers....the stash should be put to good use, after all.  Today's donation was from the family of Kay Hultquist, long time weaver and teacher of weaving here in East Tennessee.  Many of our weavers are richer this afternoon due to this donation:  this thread will be put to good use.  Kay would have liked that.

  Then it was time to start the mock up for the Foothills show in November.  We got acquainted with our new panels at Homecoming, but the booth at Foothills will be very different.  While we started carrying in the panels and shelves, Marie measured and taped off the area of our booth.

  Ray and Marie took one side while Tina and I took the opposite one.  The shelves in the corner add extra stability to our booth.  Of course, there were weaving activities  going on while we worked in the booth area.  Betsy needed to wind a warp to put on her loom at home!

  Christy was just trying to join some fabric that will be stripped for mug rugs.  She looks like we've put her in jail!!!!

Some of our weavers used this time to do some hand work on their scarves.  (I think they might be talking about other things, too!!!)

  Carl used his time to cut blue jean strips for more rugs.

  Linda worked on her rug....there's not a lot of warp left on the back beam!

  I caught Pat back in the cabinet looking for just the "right" fabric to use in a warp she's got on the loom at home.

  Eiko put the finishing touches to her fringes on this beautiful scarf.

  Share Time after lunch brought forth some lovely projects!

  Christy finished her beautiful wool and mohair shawl!

It's not weaving, but it is wonderful!  Bonnie brought her finished quilt for us to drool admire.

 When Carol said we needed more placemats, Linda got busy and finished up her warp.  Great job!!!!

  And, Karin summed up a perfect day:  Ta-da!!!!

We know what pieces we need for the Foothills show, and we all have projects dancing in her heads.

Happy Weaving!

Well, that was a busy Tuesday for sure. Such lovely things to see. Great quilt and how smart of you all to do a dry run of the booth space!
