Cleaning Up

I decided a major tidy up was called and found all sorts of unexpected things. In particular some photos of the Newbury Coat.

These are two selected from the six I have, all of people working on the loom. I did not take them - they are too good for that! So anyone recognises them, please let me know.
I also came across a bundle of good photos of Guild happenings. Again not by me. I recognise the people but not the occasions. I will take these into Guild on Saturday and see if anyone claims them.
There has been a lot of throwing out of paper and I have also found a stack of weavging handouts which again are going to Guild on Saturday. What else? Well two boxes of Crinum Powelli bulbs will be going to Guild along with upteen carefully washed and ironed Guild tablecloths. And that's about it for today.

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.
