Still Moving

I suppose you can read the title several ways. I intended to indicate that I was still unpacking though there are only four boxes rleft and they are full of wine! My office looks normal, in other words, as exact a reproduction of the Malvern office as I can manage. The studio is looking more like a studio and less like there has just been a very good party in it. On next Thursday, the Megado is being reassembled and the end will be in sight.

But I am off on my summer hols next Saturday. An archeological tour of Pueblo Indian sites in SW USA, Canyon de Chelly, Monument Valley etc etc. I am so looking forward to it. But when I return, I will set about weaving. The first thing is some lace on the fan reed. I am way behind hand on this project.
There has been no textile work at all for more than three months.

I have however had a great time at the village camera club. Last week the evening was devoted to taking close ups of odd objects. I do not think any of mine will win in a competition but it was fun.

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.
