Several years ago there was a movie called "Forest Gump". In this movie Forest told Jenny that they went together like Peas and Carrots. That is the phrase that I was thinking about today as I surveyed the students manning the table looms that were covering the work tables at the Center this morning.
Each new student is loaned an Ashford table loom that they can easily bring back and forth from their home to the Center while they are learning the basics of weaving. Here at the Center we have at least 6 small Ashford table looms that we loan out to students, if a student has one already we welcome the opportunity to help the student learn weaving on their very own loom.
Today I have pictures of 5 of the students, I know I missed a couple today, as they were not there or not on their looms as I was working on the blog pictures and content this morning.
First up we have Jenny who found out about the Appalachian Arts Craft Center at the fiber festival that is held in Towns TN at the foot of the Smokey Mountains. Jenny brings her very own Louet 8 shaft table loom to the Center.
Next I have Phyllis, and I am embarrassed to say that I have plum forgot how Phyllis came to us! We sure talked about it, but I didn't write anything down but her name! Oh Dear, we must have been having a good time!
I know that Vicky was there putting a warp on her very own rigid heddle loom, but I was in heddle fixer mode and forgot that I was the blogger and should have taken her picture as well. I guess there is always next week.
