Gold Challenge 2005

I thought it would be nice to remind myself of what the 12 pockets held in the KV Guild entry for the Gold Challenge in 2005. I remember going to pick up all the pieces from Chris Fletcher and being astonished to be handed a shoe box full of these beautiful miniatures. Each had to fit into a pocket 1.75 by 2.5 inches. It was really difficult to get the tiny tapestry loom into the pocket!

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.
