Bonnie Inouye sent me a link to a really interesting Japanese program on stencilling g fabric. It is all subtitled in English so it is comprehensible. There is a cute introduction which only lasts a short time so bear with it and savour the story of what someone does with ancient stencils The link is
Apparently MoshiMoshi is what a Japanese says when he/she answers the phone.
I progress with warping up the seamless garment. Most of it is tied on. But I must do some paperwork first.

- I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
