After The Show

  As promised, we wanted to give a BIG shout out to Debra and Michael!  We had such a wonderful time talking with them at the Foothills show.  And, we appreciate their business with us and hope they'll enjoy all their wonderful handwoven items!!!

  Tina got quite a few mug rugs woven on Sunday, which sparked a lot of great conversations!

   This morning, the tubs were hauled back into the Studio to be sorted.  We unloaded the props and hardware that were all part of the show.

  After the tubs were sorted, the woven items that belong upstairs had to be checked back in on the inventory list and put back on display in the shop.  This show was successful for the weavers!

The Ladies gave it a big thumbs up!  (I thought they were going to give me the finger!!!!)

  Joan and Irene went right back to work on more scarves for the shop...there's is always more to weave!

While the weavers were getting things checked in, Carl finished up the last rug on his warp...now it's time to cut off all those rugs!

There were 11 rugs on the cloth beam!!!

  Carl kept one of the blue jean rugs and one that had some of the purple denim.    That was such an interesting accent for the blue jean rugs.
  The fringes got knotted and the rest of the rugs are ready to be tagged to go upstairs next week!

  Although I didn't get a picture of Molly threading the loom today, I did get a great picture of the colorful warp.  Click on the picture to get a better view of all the colors!!!!

  As we look forward to 2017, we've decided to sell the 60" Leclerc and the sliding bench.  Of course, that means I've got to finish weaving the throw that's on the loom next week!!!  We're always looking forward!!!!

We are thankful for our wonderful weaving community, and all the folks that make it possible!!!

Happy Weaving!

Awesome rugs! Good luck on the loom sale. I'm betting you can fit in two Baby Wolfs into that space, maybe more! ;-)
