Old & New



 It's an ongoing project:  sorting through the stash in the annex.  Everything needs to be gone through and put into tubs, donated or trashed.  Pat worked until it got too steamy to stay outside!



  Sharon is preforming the same duty with our weaving books.  Behind her are the duplicate copies of books that we will be selling to our members or to the new weaving group in Knoxville.  Books that are leftover can go to the used book shop in town.  ($$ for MORE books!!!!)




  Pat restored the rug rack to the shop.  If folks can't see the rugs, they don't buy the rugs!!!!

  It was great seeing it back where it does the most good!


   Leftover cones of thread:  do you have any of those????

  Charlotte is helping Linda pick out some colors for a multi-colored warp.  Linda is planning some placemats using fabric for the weft.



  Diane is putting her first warp on a floor loom.  Carol is always ready to help out our new weavers!





  Carol was also helping Sheri get her warp ready for her class at John C. Campbell. 




  Marilyn is just beaming after her "wild west" tour!  She had a blast!!!

  Now, back to weaving dish towels!!!




  Marie is serging the edges of her dishtowels so she can hem them at home.  She's already thinking about how many towels she needs to weave before the Christmas sales!




  Betsy was trying to concentrate as she threaded the heddles....I don't think I was helping!  In fact, I accidentally stepped on her light cord....that didn't help at all!!!





   Alyce is working on the scarf warp....just pick up where you left off!




Bonnie got her towel warp sleyed (she warps front to back) so now she's ready to thread.  

Hummmmm...from the front or from the back???  Either beam will come off this Leclerc loom!

  So...what do you use to weigh down a scarf while you twist the fringes???

  Liz  pulled Helene Bress' The Weaving Book.  It's really heavy!




   It's always good to see Frieda!  It looks like she's got a new warp on her Inkle loom.

    Peggy dropped by for lunch sporting her new purple cast!

  It's always good to see our weaving friends!


Happy Weaving!
