Happy New Year to All

I came down to Winterbourne Houghton, Dorset, last Saturday to help celebrate Ruth's birthday. So far there has been a lot of eating, drinking and cooking. On Sunday evening, we played the Murder Mystery Game which involved everyone dressing up in 1920s clothes.
We also walked all over Lulworth Cove. The cliffs were very steep and eminently suitable for so done getting fit for walking the Camino Compostela. 

I have thought about textiles but mostly I have been reading books about Miniature Books and looking up details on the web. All very interesting. Perhaps I should try that but it would involve getting to grips with letterpress.

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.
