The first post of 2014.....where to begin?
The weaving has begun with a simple warp on the workshop loom in preparation for a workshop next week with JoAnn Bachelder. The link is to the guild registration page. Although the registration deadline was Dec. 15, I bet you could get in if you contact them.
It's a three shaft weave workshop. I chose brown and white as my contrasting colors...not very interesting, hence no photo's.
Since my last post, I had a birthday. One of my gifts was Inge Dam's book:
Another book for the new year is Textiles: The Whole Story by Beverly Gordon.
And the last textile book is Cotton: The Fabric that Made the Modern World by Giorgio Riello (I gave you the Amazon link so you can go do the "look inside" thing.):
And the last title I've acquired is a bittersweet one for me. It wasn't a birthday gift, but something I just bought for myself:
There are others in my family who have a great resentment of my early and continuing love for books, but not Dale. I have benefited greatly from his encouragement and pride in my accomplishments. He was a character...and a hero...and we all miss him terribly.
