As always, things are moving into high gear around here as we get ready for the Foothills show. Pat (R) and I made straw looms for the kits this morning. We are almost out!
Just in time, Alyce was ready to cut off her towel warp.
And, Linda decided to cut off the towels she had on the cloth beam on the Macomber. There are four jade towels and two yellow ones.
Carol pulled out the serger and started on Alyce's towels. When she finished serging the hems, she just went on to Linda's towels next. The ladies will take them home to hem and wet finish.
Jaid was back with us today, and she's been working on her lovely red warp.
Just look at this lovely piece!!!!
Bonnie and Ms. Ila are weaving the "snake skin" pattern, but they look so different because of the size.
On the right is a close up of Ms. Ila's shawl. That gray warp with the black weft is really working!
After adding some heddles to the loom, Mary got busy threading her new warp.
Sharon was busy threading, too. That's another scarf warp on the loom!
It's blue scarves for Frieda in that very unique eight shaft pattern.
Now that Marilyn has finished the twill sections of her first warp, she's ready to do a table runner with the rest of the warp.
Helen, Jocelyn and Betsy kept the back corner buzzing today
(What a maze of looms!!!)
After we moved all the parked Pups, Carl got in position at the back of the loom to thread the heddles. He only has a few inches to finish next week, and then they'll be winding on that new rug warp!
Here's a peek at the new display Ray and Marie put together last week. It is truly amazing how much can be placed on this! And, everything is so visible!
It will be a mad dash from now until November 15th.
