Yesterday I attended two classes, one on turning drafts and one on Tied Weaves. The Turning Drafts one was interesting. I turn drafts by telling Fibreworks to do it. It was a revelation to have to do it by hand. I got it wrong first time round. The Tied Weaves was by Robyn Spadywho provided a great handout and talked very well. Later on in the day, I listened to John Marshall talking about his judging of the yardage show. It sounds to me as if it is the luck of the draw whether you are accepted or not. He took 22 out of over 50.
The pieces were hung from a balcony. The photo above shows mine on the left and Cally Booker's on the right.
All the swatches are shown above.
In the evening, Rosie and I went out to supper with Linda Bowden who is the saganishiki expert. She and her husband have a rented place in Jamestown - and this is the view from their patio!! We sat there drinking wine and admiring the view, then went for a seafood meal. Great. I ate bluefish on the grounds that I had never tried. I prefer scrod. And of course we discussed textiles.
So now another day and another two classes.
