In the train

I am in the train to Birmingham for a meeting of the Midlands Textile Forum - and worrying . I have been reading our insurance policy which is due for renewal and I do not like it. The insurance man is going to have some explaining to do.

I got up early this morning and finished the first scarf, started the second. I think I can finish it tonight. I will cut it off then because the scarves are quite thick being handspun and the breast beam is getting too fat.

No photos of current textiles this morning but my current favourite photo from the Silk Route trip.

Bringing back mulberry leaves for the silkworms in Uzbekistan. It's the smiles that get me.

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.
