I flew out on Monday. Heathrow to Detroit to Milwaukee with four hours in Detroit. I am still suffering. My classes started and I have done all sorts of thingsthough most will not be ready till tomorrow. Stencilling, copier paper on to fabric using gel or white acrylic.the tutor is very good.

We had a happening at lunchtime. The sewers went on fire and the.ectrocity s up ply suffered so the centre was closed and we were all thrown on to the street where we hung around for 90 minutes. Then two firemen appeared looking like Darth Vader Stormtroopers only grey not white. Certainly they clanged. We all rushed back to our classes and got on.

Photos will be shown tomorrow. 

After the fire, HGA got on with hanging the yardage exhibit. There do. Or see to be so many entries this year, only 18.

Some of the yardage exhibit.

More of the same.

Some reflections across the street.

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.
