renewal

February 2, 2013

a new weaver

students 144

one of my students was determined to wear her scarf home at the end of Thursday’s class

the hem stitching was finished, we allowed for a fringe , wove in a rod to tie on the remaining warp for sampling and then cut off all that hard work.

chaos

I’ve been helping to dispose of another weaver’s equipment, stash and odds and ends

this is the end – a weekend sale in the studio, the proceeds will go to her charity

don’t know if it is more difficult to “get rid of” a lifetime of treasures and junk when it belongs to yourself or someone else?

        Velma – that is just the warp and filler yarn in the fringe. she was so excited to finish. as you know it is reward itself when as student enjoys what they are doing.

    jean, i thought it was some kind of lace/space weaving! you do so much technical stuff (ie, pattern weaving on more than 4 harnesses) that i have long forgotten! was the web a log cabin? that’s what you usually start people with isn’t it? (and a very good idea, too)

      Velma – yes, everybody starts with log cabin, that way they learn to wind two warp ends at once, weave with two shuttles, use “fine”? thread, use a floating selvedge and hem stitch in their first project. And learn that simple is beautiful.

    As one of Jeans past students, I am so thankful she took the time to offer classes and teach me how to weave. I get excited every time I put on a new warp.

      thank you, Kathy. It is mutual, I am excited every time I see your new weaving and how you continue to try new patterns and weaving structures. Well done!
