Making a point

With weaving, the possibilities really are endless. Whether it’s discovering new methods on a rigid heddle or testing out the complications of a 12-shaft loom, your imagination is the only limitation.

For those, like Jordan who would rather avoid the challenge of a complicated pattern, a simple 4-shaft twill is plenty challenging. This point draft is based on a simple repeat in both the threading and the weaving. Simple can still make a statement, though.

Stay tuned for the finished product.

Dye Another Day

The weather cooperated perfectly for our annual Dye Day hosted by Louise H. A rainbow could be found in the dye pots and the ladies with their wheels found under the shade of a big maple tree.

Jude, of Ewesful Creations, was kind enough to bring a pile of her custom dyed fibre for the rest of us to pick through and purchase.
What’s a beautiful day without treats to go with it?
Who doesn’t want to just roll around in this pile of gorgeous fibre?
