last night was student “tea and tell” night

students 160

Ann’s first weaving on her own, M’s and O’s tea towels, well done!

students 161

fantastic treasures, her mother-in-law’s 110 year old tea towels, woven in Germany

students 163

more tea towels – Kathy’s marvellous colours, in Fibonacci stripes. Heather wants to wear them.

students 159

Heather’s shawl, so soft and subtle

students 166

I’ve been given 6 binders of exquisite samples, approximately 30, 6″ X 6″ woven samples in each binder

shared between the Cross Country Weavers from 1991 – 1996

there is nothing better than being able to feel actual samples

students 164

 inspired by the samples, we will each use some of this  70/3 linen, weave something of our choosing – there is enough to go around! –  and share the results
