Ending and Beginning


  Goodness...it was a busy weekend!  I didn't get a chance to post any pictures on the blog, but I did post a couple on Facebook.

  This was the left side of the booth, and you can see Carol's beautiful coats and the shawls.  We had a table with a tree with ornaments and we put Tina's rug there so people would stop and feel the loveliness.


  We tried a new set up with our black panels, and this part really worked for the items.  That's our mug rugs on the top left.  On the right side you'll see the hand dyed weft yarn that could be used for weaving or knitting.  The scarf kits were down below.

  We sold ALL of our "whimsy hats".  This was the last one.  There's still lots of room for placemats, scarves and throws.

  We set a record on take down as we walked out of the building after 41 minutes from closing!!!!

  We had a lot of GREAT help!

And, we begin again!

  Welcome to our new weaver, Candance.  She got lost in her count and ended up winding four extra inches!!!  

  No worries!  That happens!  Carol helped her wind off the extra threads!!!

I hope this never happens to me!!!

  Christy calls this a HOT MESS!  Actually, it is a skein of hand dyed yarn that she took home to rinse.  Her washer decided that it needed another WASH before it ran the spin cycle.  She is patiently untangling it and rolling the end into a ball.


  Shannon is threading her newest project while Susan works on her placemats.

  Well, not everyone was through with the Foothills Sale!  Marie had to check in all the inventory that went back upstairs and write checks for the weavers that sold items.  Carol and Linda were the big sellers!

  Shirley's colorful placemats are going great!  Ruth is working on some towels.

  Patty is offering Laura some tips on adding bands of color that you want to repeat at the end of the mat (or runner.)  Linda is watching the progress.

  Tina is warping front to back for a set of block design placemats.

  Bonnie, who always warps front to back, was busy threading her warp for 2/2 twill towels.  

  We tied the harnesses to the castle so Bonnie would put so much strain on her back.  She said it was working much better.

  Pearl thinks it might be possible that a loom fairy visited her loom!  She's so close to the finish!!!  She will be weaving an eight harness M&W pattern for towels.

So much going on!!!!

Happy Weaving!
