Polly and Linda were hard at work checking out each loom.
What a morning to start weaving!!!!
A big welcome to Peggy, our newest Tuesday Weaver! Peggy is a member of the Cricket Club at the Clinch River Yarn Company, which is where she heard about our little group. She's ready to step up to weaving on more than two shafts!!!
Carol got her to work winding her first warp.
Over in the corner, Irene was busy on the sewing machine while Pat threaded her Wall of Troy warp for soup cozies.
This is a look of intense concentration!!!! Levers up....levers down......Frieda is really good at working on the eight harness table loom.
It's fun to watch the shawl warps move from one color area to another. Jocelyn does such a beautiful job weaving on this warp.
Although Anna is getting ready to leave for a trip abroad, she was at the Center today weaving on her scarf warp. Now, that's dedication!!!!
Marie was on desk duty upstairs this morning. But, the weavers kept sneaking upstairs to visit with her!!!
We had several visitors come downstairs, too. In fact, one lady had bought a set of placemats that I wove!!!!
The lights went out after lunch, but these hardy weavers just kept on weaving!!!! They were out for about 30 minutes!!!
(We never heard what had happened that caused the lack of electricity!)
Since Shirley's loom was near the door, she had plenty of light as she and Bonnie wound on that springtime warp!
Sharon finished hemstitching, and started weaving her next scarf.
Linda's towel warp tends to make your eyes go cross-eyed!!! (Don't tell her I said that, though!)
The shawl warp on Ms. Ila's loom moves from one color to the next. Purple is the next color up....it's hiding on the heddles right now. We'll check back next week.
Betsy finished this placemat and will be starting another.
It was time to advance the warp...that means you get to move that big warp beam and readjust the broom handle! Carl knows this loom so well!
Yes....that's Peggy in the back right. She and Carol were winding on her warp. Peggy started threading this afternoon! Not too shabby for your first day!
Helen just continues to weave away on her project!!!
What a great way to spend this lovely day!
