Busy, Busy!


  I love seeing a yarn order sorted on the table!  What a colorful sight.  It's also a great lesson in dye lots!  The color sample on the charts don't always line up exactly with the cone of yarn!!!

  Marie, Tina and I got it sorted (both 8/4 and 8/2) and labeled.  This group was boxed until we get our new shelves that are due soon.

  Jocelyn's placemats are rolling onto the cloth beam.  These will be ready for the fall sale at the beginning of November.

  Pat's clasp weft rugs are lookin' good!  For her next rug, Pat is going to use three colors.  She did some research in the Collingwood rug book, and I'm sure there will be a little sampling going on!  Stay tuned next week!!!

Susan is getting ready to wind on a rug warp.  She's already cut her blue jean strips for the weft.

Oh, thank you, Mary!

  It's been a long time since we had homemade goodies, and your brownies were fantastic!

Lou Ann is ready to put her colorful towel warp on her loom.

Carol jumped in to help her get started.

   Shirley and Marilyn hold down their side of the studio.  (Shirley's scarves have really been selling upstairs!)

  These ladies hold down their side of the studio!  Bonnie, Linda and Laura are working on towels and placemats.

  Betsy has the corner spot:  she's using a different color for weft for the last few yards of her warp.

  Tina found a broken warp thread at the back of the loom....time to fix it!

  Charlotte's been busy at home, again.  She brought in her newest scarf and placemats to sell in the shop.

Sharen is working with her adopted placemat warp....use that t-shirt knit or 8/4 bundles????  Some sampling might be helpful.

  What a wonderful gift for our library!  Sharon is getting Bonnie's books ready to go on the shelf.  There are some great books on Rep Weave.....ready to try some???

Have a good week, fiber friends!
