From my ipad

This is a practice blog. I was given an iPad for christmas so that I could blog about the silk route trip. And three months later I have got round to checking that I can blog!! Iam still not very proficient but since I am limited to 15kg of luggage for seven weeks, it is the iPad or nothing. I still have to conquer getting photos into the blog but I still have nine days to practise!!

On the textile front, I have threaded the Megado up, sleyed it and tied on. And I wish this machine would mind its own business about spelling.

Now to try a few more tricks!!g

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.
