weaving classes and alphabets

June 12, 2012

I’ve been teaching beginning weaving classes in my studio for 3 years – since I retired

before that I taught weaving to the handicapped for 12 years – in American sign language

summer class is about to start, please contact me if you are interested


language and the means to communicate is important to me

some time ago I started collecting alphabet stamps, the 3 on the top left were the first


Velma sent me this wonderful boxed set  

while in Japan I found this set of hiragana – do you know how much time it has taken to identify each one when they are backwards and possibly upside down or sideways??


and today I came across these old lead printer’s letters, the whole alphabet

I think they can now be classed as a collection!

a packrat?  who me?

    Oh and alphabets and letters also float my boat, I hadn’t thought about a collection of them though… off to make room.

    I am nearly caught up and wishing fervently that I could make it across country to take lessons… there is so much going on right now that I will just have to start saving for later.

    Yes, that’s a collection, and a nice one at that!
    When I was a kid, I had plans to print a newspaper for my family using my alphabet stamp set. After the first paragraph of the lead article I gave it up. I still have the alphabet set. Now I wonder where it is? Perhaps under this pile, or that…hmmm…

      Alice – maybe now you could just weave the alphabet?
      Neki – I seem to have missed “so” but have one unidentified block – it’s been quite a challenge.
      Ali – wish you could come
