Back Home

The photos above are of Cally Booker's new Studio (see her blog here - very nice. The room is large - and high and the heating, lighting are included in the rent so you don't get any nasty surprises. I visited this yesterday morning and then had lunch with her. Her house is only a few minutes walk from the studio block.

I drove home this morning and have tidied up a bit. I have computer trouble - I can't get at any attachments which is a pest. I have thought of a complicated way to do it. Sigh! But at the moment I must make sure I have collected everything together for tomorrow which is Kennet Valley Guild day.

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.
