I have started serious work on binding 'Cider with Rosie'. This entailed finding the material for the cover first and that involved tidying up my paper stash. However I did find it in a roll and it is now in the press being flattened out.
This afternoon, I revised and prepared all the art work so it prints to the correct size.
In order from the top, back cover,front cover, spine.
One thing working on the three textblocks showed was that the room needs seriously thought. And a lot of changes are going to take place next week.

- 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.
