It's Just Like Magic

Do you wonder about all those warps that the Weavers do on Dye Day?  What do they "grow up" to be????

  Here's Ms. Ila's warp that she has been threading on her 8 harness Mighty Wolf.  You might think this is two different warps, but this is the shawl that was woven today.  It seems to change from one moment to another!!!!!

   Last week we saw a close-up picture of Betsy's placemats.  Today she finished the first one, and you can see the color change in today's photo.  These really are patriotic placemats!!!!


One minute they are cutting more strips of blue jeans for the rugs, and the next thing you know, Carl is back at his loom starting a new rug.


   A coverlet with a few treadling errors can fixed with a few carefully placed threads and a real, sharp eye!!!!  (Thank you, Tina!!!)

  And, just when you think you don't have enough dyed yarn to finish your scarf, it surfaces in your tote bag!!!!!

 What do you do with a whole drawer of full bobbins?  You get Marie and Pat to wind off the thread!!!  Thank you, ladies!

  When you sit down and start weaving, you can get a placemat finished before you know it!!!  Right, Liz?

Anna and Frieda have their heads together.  Wonder what they're up to???

  Another dyed warp for Sharon.

We'll have to wait for the magic for Ray's warp.  Right now, it doesn't look like much, huh?  But, you just wait and see!!!

Another magical Tuesday at the Center.  Join us sometime.....

Happy Weaving!
