Well....actually, Ms. Ila's daughter donated leftover bamboo to the weavers! These are all weft from her beautiful weaving projects, and they needed a new home.
We challenged Carol to select some cakes to make a warp for a wrap that we would weave in the Studio. I wasn't surprised at her color choice: teals....her favorite! Tina challenged her to make a second warp for another wrap, which she did. (You can spy the burgundy and blue there on the table.)
Our new weavers got to see Carol wind the warp using 5 threads at a time which she places between her fingers. This will be a fun project.....stay tuned!!!!
Carol cautioned Katelyn and Sandi that they weren't quite ready for winding 5 threads just yet. Learning to weave is a process....that's for sure.
Pat has been busy at home weaving placemats for the Cliff Dwellers shop in Gatlinburg. Now that they're tagged, they are ready to go!
Mary is concentrating on weaving more of the white placemats for the Fall sales in the Shop and for the Foothills show. It looks like she has a nice size roll of mats ready to be cut off and hemmed.
Ray continues to work on his next table cloth.
Tina finished her latest warp for the key chain project, and I think I heard her say that she got three and a half yards. As we finish the key rings at home, we'll get a final count soon.
These ladies just stay busy, busy, busy! Linda is threading....Bonnie is weaving another shawl.....and, Marilyn keeps turning out those great placemats!
Pearl pitched in to help Linda when some threads got snagged on the sectional beam. Isn't it great to have weaving friends! That's Pearl's gray warp on the Pup.
Frieda brought her wee Inkle purses for Share time today. (I think she might be having too much fun with her Inkle loom! She's already warping her little loom for another band.
After all their hard work last week, Ms. Ila is ready to rethread her warp. That means that Bonnie is back to weaving her scarf.
Somehow I neglected to get photos of Carl, Liz, Betsy and Shirley!!!! I know I talked with all of them today, but they will be first on my list next week!!!
