By weaving all day, I have finished the fabric for the small NC. 3.7 metres of it. And only five inches of waste at the end of it. I have hemmed it on the loom but not cut it off because I need to think of what I am going to do next just in case I want to do something which could use that threading. So I will sit on it till Sunday. Tomorrow I am going to a class where I will learn about the Secret Belgian Binding. I have heard one story about the name but will hear what the tutor has to say before I commit to print.

Have I said that the vegetable plot is providing veg, in particular some spectacular lettuces,radishes, spring onions. And the French beans are looking good.

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.
