We now have a good selection of 8/2 cotton unmercerized for all those hand towels we weavers love to make. Along with that is a complete line of merino fingering weight for weavers of all styles, floor loom rigid heddle, tapestry, …….
Our new line of countermarch looms has just arrived from Glimakra. A user friendly loom 26.5 inch weaving width for a very reasonable price point. Come and meet her.
We will be hosting a Spinzilla Team again this year through TNNA. Last year we were a small team and paired with another and our joint teams came in 20th out of 75- not too shabby our first time out. We are hoping to field a full 20 person team this year. Our Louet Spinzilla packs are arriving each month. Dave at Louet has put together some awesome combinations for a cost to you of $80 plus tax but there is over $120 of value in the packs. Each month is a different combination which is also a great way to try new fibers and build your stash for winter.
This coming fall and winter we will again host our weaving weekends which were a big hit last year and we will add a monthly Spinners weekend. Topics will include Silk and silk blends, Twist as a design factor, Ply your way to success, Art Yarn ins and outs, Bast fibers- Linen and friends. These are the workshops I am preparing for so let me know which ones interest you the most. There are 5 possibilities and four weekends. These workshops will be held on Saturdays from 9:30 – 5:00 in October, November, February and March. Dates to become available in August at the lastest.
We are upgrading our web store to include a cart for your ease and convienence.
Also due to my rather limited techie status several of my lasts blog posts did not go live- dah. Classes for the summer are on going. Call and come by.
