Megado cleared

The blue and brown tweed is off the Megado and in a heap waiting to be inspected. The Megado has been cleared of yarn but not yet cleaned and I got 35 samples off to Complex Weavers Fine threads group. I had to find the fabric, check I had enough for 35 samples, give it a good press and write up the handout whichy goes with it. I did manage to get it in the post to the States this afternoon so that is another job ticked off.

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.
