Can you believe it???? A lot of the area schools are already back in session! Around here, school is always in session. We are always sharing our knowledge with each other.
Remember that indigo dyed thread that Tina was working on recently???? She delivered the skein to Marie this morning....all nice and tidy! Although it is too fine to use for warp, it will be a fantastic weft.
Marie stepped into teacher mode with Pearl's project....just lending a hand (and lots of experience) to work through the beginning of a new weaving adventure.
Peggy's warp will be huck placemats...and if she enjoys weaving them, she's planning on weaving curtains in huck!
This is Helen's first project on a floor loom, and Tina was there to offer advice and suggestions. That also means that she's working with a boat shuttle instead of a stick shuttle, which is another learning curve!
Remember all those panels that Christy joined for Carl? Today was the day they were cut into strips. By the time Carl finished, he had a whole bucket full of blue jean strips for his rugs.
Just take a look at the roll of rugs on the cloth beam!!!! That's what all those strips turn into...beautiful rugs! I love how the different blue jean strips play in the warp.
Linda's going for another green towel on this warp. The red ones are already upstairs in the shop. The trick right now is to weave as many as possible to get ready for our November show.
Bonnie has started weaving the huck placemats on the painted warp. Carol suggested using chocolate brown for her weft, and it's looking great!
Sharon, Linda and Frieda continued weaving....but, where is Alyce?????
Ah-ha! She was over with Pearl going over a PLAN! Weavers helping weavers!!!
Our order of 8/2 yarn came in, which means that Marie has bookkeeping to complete. It's always something!!! (And, yes, Marie....I see that fringe twister!)
Have you ever had that moment when you look at your warp....it's ready to begin threading and you just draw a blank???? What were you thinking??? Betsy double checked her plans and just dove in to thread. She's got this!!!!
Ohhhhhh......what is it??? SHHHHH! Don't tell! It's a surprise!!! Stay tuned........
I'm not going to name names, but someone played hooky today to go shopping with her daughter!!!!! She missed seeing Anna, and all her weaving friends! And, she won't be able to tattle on us!!!!
Yes....school's back in session!!!
