Back to the Fan Reed

I have stopped procrastinating about the fan reed and started work. The first pattern (first since
A lot of the family came to lunch which was taken in a local pub. The Fox and  Hounds. Across the road from the pub is a Nature Reserve which is mostly lake with wildfowl and bulrushes and islands. There is said to be a lot of wildlife. We did not see much, not even of the two legged variety.

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.
