Business As Usual

                                                                                    Another show in the books!
  Friday and Saturday sales were fantastic!  The rain bands from Hurricane Nate hit on Sunday, and that was pretty much the end for Homecoming this year!  But, we did over $2,000 in sales, which was nice!
  Marie, Tina and I packed it up, loaded it in the cars, and waved good bye until today.
  As we arrived this morning, we unloaded our cars here at the Center and returned unsold items to the weavers.  Items from the shop were checked off the list and placed back on display upstairs.
  Marie brought her steamer to refresh the scarves on the display rack.  They were a little rumpled from being in the car all day yesterday!!!!
  We took a little time to talk about things we'd like to change next year...it's always good to reflect after big events are over.  We have about 5 weeks to get ready for the Foothills show in November!


   Now it's back to business.
Christy is joining blue jean legs to make into weft for Carl's rugs.  



  Carl was hard at work at his loom making more blue jean rugs.  It won't be much longer before he'll need another warp!

  Of course new warps need to be wound at the Center already.  Helen got some expert advice from Carol for her warp.  (Love that shade of green!!!)
  That's Alyce over by the door winding her warp.

  Thanks to Sharon, we were able to keep up our strength.  She wanted to try the new pumpkin spice morsels.  Yum!
  I didn't get a picture of the cake that Pat baked for us.  Chocolate Spice.........homemade icing, too!!!!    Oh, my!!!!
  Thank you, ladies!!!!

  We'll get busy and keep those looms going.  It's just business as usual.

Happy Weaving!
