The Guru has Spoke

I explained my problems to the guru - in his hospital bed - and he asked a lot of questions. The relevant one was 'where exactly did you plug in the network?' We use a mains network system so we have a connection plugged into the mains supply in the office and another plugged in to that in the loom room.  But I had plugged it into the UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) in the loom room - whence it sees nothing! Move it to an ordinary mains outlet and Houston, we have lift-off! Watch this space for photos.

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.
