Weaving Workshop



So there it is....the start of a new skill. I should take a picture of the selvedge. I'm so proud of it! I finally can WEAVE! I've wanted to do this all my life. I bought the loom several months ago for really cheap at the guild. It is worth joining a guild for the cheap supplies you can get! Anyway, Mary Keer was kind enough to slip me into her course and I had the best time. Warping was ok, until you started threading the heddle. (I actually know what I'm talking about now!). But the weaving was great and Mary is so good and patient. She has been teaching for many years, and she is still so enthusiastic!

This was such great fun, thanks for all of your comments!

Carrie, it was harder to warp then it was to weave. In fact I'm looking forward to doing something more elaborate with the weaving, because I found that part kind of boring! The warping though, I'm so glad I had someone there to help me with!

I love the fabric you made. The colours go so well together. It's so impressive that you've only just started learning and yet it looks so good.
