Replacement T shirts

One of the results of the Silk Route trip was that I dumped a lot of Tshirts on the way. When I returned home, I bought some MandS white cotton Tshirts (much recommended for dyeing). Last week I had a lot of leftover Procion dye from the silk chiffon so I made these. The blazing white on the red one is real. I think the purple one is better and it looks good at the back too. I must do some stencilling on teh other Tshirts.

Yesterday was the weaving class. Only two of the class have not completed  their warping up. The rest are madly weaving and there are some really nice overshot patterns appearing. I also acquired two looms. Not for me but for Cally Booker. They are still in the back of the car. I await someone tomorrow to help me get them into the garage. One is a Harris floor loom and the other a large table loom. We have yet to organise how they get to Dundee.

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.
