I almost completed my goals for the september challenge except by the time i got to the linen russian peasant dress the weather was getting colder and I couldn’t see working on something i would not wear till next summer. so instead I made some felted buttons for a pink wool jacket, added some funky felted flowers to the shoulders and worked on perfecting my felt geodes. I also started a weaving class.
They have me working on a massive counter balance loom with twelve treadles and I am almost finished dressing the loom for the sampler the teacher is having me make so I get to know a variety of patterns.
Then I will have to decide about using the community center looms on an ongoing basis or maybe buying a small loom. Who has a loom? What kind? What do you weave. I am thinking I want to weave my own fabric for sewing. not just make runners mats, shawls and blankets.
so weavers ———- please speak up
