And The Word Went Out.....

  The Center is having a "brush cleaning" day later this week, and since we are here on Tuesdays, some of our Weavers brought their nippers and gloves and cut down the brush growing around the Annex.  It was Marie's turn to "crack the whip!"  Bonnie drove her truck to weaving today, and hauled off all the clippings.  Thank you, Ladies....great job!

The second call to action was for ornament ideas....and the weavers jumped right on the band wagon.  Margi came in with this great tree ornament using a folded half circle. 
  And, we had shape ornaments that needed to be embellished, and we had lots of volunteers for that job, too.

This was a good day to welcome our newest weaver, Connie.  She got to see all the action!!!
Her husband is planning on building her a loom.

  Carl finished up the rug he had been working on today, and will start a new one next week. 

Betsy cut off four of the wool rugs from her loom....that cloth beam was getting really full.

Shirley's cloth beam was getting full, too!  These scarves were cut off and will be ready for the Foothills show.
  Jocelyn and Carol found time to get to their looms today, too.

Frieda shared her newest project after lunch:  coin purses!!!  In the Studio she's weaving scarves on a painted warp.

  Sharon brought her kumihimo loom and wove a bracelet.  There are so many ideas bouncing around!!!!

  Ms. Ila knew we'd need to keep up our strength, so she baked us a Pina Colada Cake!  Needless to say, there wasn't even a crumb left after lunch!!!!!  Thank you, Ms. Ila!

We answered the call.....and we'll come back next week with even more ideas!!!!  Just too much fun!!!!

Happy Weaving!
