The weaving room at the ARCC (Aberdeen Recreation and Cultural ) has received a wonderful gift.  A 45″ weaving-width Colonial Loom made by Leclerc Looms!

It came completely disassembled. This photo shows less than half of the pieces. I was so excited I forgot to take a picture before I started to assemble it.

It’s snowing outside. Which makes it a great day for hand sewing. I’m hemming some dish towels for a customer today.

Woot Woot.

ARCC weaving projects are well on their way. Weaving “Overshot”, “Shadow Weave”, Bronson Lace”  and “Multiple Twills”. I’m so proud of my students at the Aberdeen Recreation Cultural Center!

Why is it that every time I wind a warp with a light colored yarn it’s  a cloudy day? Thanks to some crazy lighting and Tracey Ambrose’s you-tube video, “Multi-strand warping” I can wimd four yarns at a time with a cross! Thank you Tracy for this video.

I’m so exited about this new reed holder I converted from an old book rack! Just what the Aberdeen Recreation Cultural Center needed in the weaving room!

I was at North Country Fiber Fair in Watertown this pasted weekend. It was another great show and event! I want to thank everyone who stopped by,  attended and worked at this event. I hope to see you all again next year!

September 15, 2019

Today I went to my studio to get ready for North Country Fiber Fair, which is this weekend. I noticed that the loom I am going to use to teach my class, still has warp on it.  Which means……I get to spend my day weaving! YEAH!! I love the weaving life.

I walked into the weaving room at the ARCC today for the Art Expo and discovered new shelving! Come to the Art EXpo today 12-4 and check it out, and feel free to give me ideas on how to use them!

When I first got the commission to weave a custom tablecloth, my first step was talking with the client to find out the type of style he wanted for their table/dining room and the colors to be used. The colors were chosen from their China and style was FolkArtI began the design process using my computer program to plot my ideas.

September 4, 2019

The Weaving Room is all set up and ready for the Art Expo at the Aberdeen Recreation and Cultural Center! September 7th at 12 noon-4pm. Come check out the program, see some weaving samples, and get your weaving questions answered. I look forward to seeing you!

About two years ago, my darling husband made me this horizontal warping mill. I finally had a chance to use it – 18 yards so far – my longest warp!

Thanks Joe!

Just some sampling work

August 27, 2019

I’m alive and still weaving and teaching! I just haven’t been posting and keeping you up to date. For which I apologize for.  I’ve been commissioned to weave a custom table cloth large enough to serve 12 people plus matching napkins. My client sent me this picture of the red and white tablecloth as an example of the style he wants.  Please note: I did not weave this and I can’t give the weaver the personal credit due. I’m sorry, but I have no idea who wove it. The white cloth with the gold and blue pattern is one of my samples. Over the next few weeks I will get you all up to speed on my process from the beginning, and the final project has yet to be completed. I hope you’ll enjoy this as much as I do.  

Happy Weaving!
