Life has been fraught over the past few days. We really are going to get the house keys on Saturday. We went round yesterday and discussed power sockets and lighting in the studios with an electrician and talked to a gardener about uprooting most of the overgrown, underloved shrubs in the garden. 

And today, I took the train into London to catch the Eurostar to Brussels and on to Antwerp. I am with a group of book binders and tomorrow we are getting a detailed guided tour of the Plantin-moretus Museum - one of the earliest of European printer/bookbinders. Photos will be taken. I think this will be a nice restful three days. I am going home on Friday

  1. Only you would think that traveling until 1 day before taking possession of a new house could be considered "restful!" I hope it is, because moving into that new house will definitely not be. Do try to take it easy!

About Me

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.
