Around The Studio

   As you come in the downstairs door to the Studio on any given Tuesday, the first thing you'll see are the Ladies.   Shirley, Bonnie and Ms. Ila anchor the back row.

  Since we have so many weavers now, there is another row of weavers facing the Ladies.
  You can see the back of Roz's head in the picture above, then you will see Sharon and Frieda.
  The great thing about this arrangement is that they can talk to each other as they weave.

  What is really amazing is seeing a line up of all these beautiful warps!  All those colors just make you SMILE!

  At the tables, Christy was helping Margi get her Inkle loom threaded.  Christy is our go-to person on the Inkle loom.

  Charlotte helped Carl this morning as he cut more strips for a new rug.  He finished up the blue jean rug he was working on after lunch, and next week he'll start on this one.  I can't wait to see how it looks under that dark blue warp!

  Come to find out, the Leclerc loom that came to us from a local church actually belongs to US!!!  Interesting!!!!

  Harriet and Tina wound off the warp to get a sense of how much was on the back beam.  By this afternoon, Harriet was weaving in a header for a rug!!!

Betsy is having way too much fun with her rug warp....and using up lots of leftover wool yarn in the process!
  Sharon is back to weaving more neutral placemats on the little Leclerc.  We only have a few weeks to add to our stock!
  Lanny's placemats are filling up the cloth beam....wonder how many are wound up on the beam????

  Hey, look!  Marie isn't doing any bookkeeping this week!  Instead, we have her busy on a repair job!  She has so many talents!!!!  Let's face it, we can't use that bench until the leg is fixed....and Marie is great at that kind of thing!

  Carol got a nice surprise....her friend Missy has moved into our neck of the woods....and she weaves, also!!!!  Maybe we'll be seeing more of her in the future!
  We had several visitors in the Studio today...they love walking around and seeing what's on the looms. 
  I understand!

Happy Weaving!
