More on Dillington Hall

And there are all the correct attributes of a gentleman's country residence, cedar trees, an arboretum - and even a very large magnolia grandiflora growing against the front aspect, on the extreme right in the top photo.

I had a bad night last night. The classes went on until after 10 and I then collapsed into bed but woke at 4 am with all the music going round in my head.

Now home again and realising I did not take enough notes. I have bought two books from amazon  which I hope will remind me everything I did not note.

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.
