All of the above has to be taken inside the NEC in Birmingham for the three day course and I know the car park is miles from the class room so I have to get everything into a wheeled suitcase. And I don't see how!!! Well, that is tomorrow night's problem. The course on Orthodox Binding is tomorrow.

My sister, Dorothy, has been here and we spent a lot of time sorting out and looking out things which we might take to the NEC class. This afternoon we went to Stonehouse to see an exhibition of quilts at Abigail's Crafts,. She agrees with me that the choice of fabric available there is exceptional. Of course I acquired some more!! This one was a present from Dorothy. She knows what I like!  If I size the books right, I should get two book covers out of it.

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.
