Revision

We have a revised company vision, really that is a good thing. "Where the people have no vision, they perish." There has been so much going on in the month of October that I really don't know where to start. Perhaps I should just sum it up........'Business is good!!!'. There. That aught to do it.

In the next couple of months there will be some changes to Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio's main site to reflect some of the changes that have been taking place internally. Some of the pages will be changed and moved around. Please, by no means, consider the fact that we are changing a bad thing. It's just that we are growing and need to move things accordingly.

In February we will be one year on line and I'm happy to say that it has been a wonderful year!!! Next year will be even better. The lack of posting in the blog is due to time restraints at this time of the year that so many crafters are familiar with. Shows, supplies and demand, the change of weather, school schedules, etc all hold us back from keeping the world at our fingertips. Instead we concentrate on what is important and keep our eyes on the goal.

Most of the hand woven items are in galleries and boutiques right now and not posted for sale online. Items will be listed when in the studio as I don't like having them in two places at once........makes sense, right? If there is something that you have seen for sale and no longer see it, don't hesitate to ask.

Ok. Now for the fun stuff:) I wish I had time to list all of the pictures of things that have sold!!! That would be fun:) Instead, I would like to show some of the items that are currently for sale. Let's start with some hand spun yarn.




And of course.........the latest weaving project:

This is a picture of the weaving process for a shibori shawl in rayon on the loom. This shawl has since been removed and the fringe twisted. I will begin gathering the supplemental weft picks tonight. More pictures to come:)

Waffle Weave Towels

There really is no greater therapy than creating.  There is something to be said when one can take time to create something and sit back and look at the results and be pleased.  I've been working through my stash of yarn and am nearing the end of it.  I'm getting to the colors that I'm not very fond of which is, in turn, making me look at the finished products and thinking 'meh'.  This last run of tencel scarves had me feeling that way.  I much prefer using rich colors as opposed to muted tones because the results are always pleasing to the eye.  Though these scarves have great luster due to the fiber content, they just lack the 'wow' I like to say when I'm finished.

     Switching gears and heading over to my Glimakra, I've decided to go with a run of waffle weave towels.  Since I don't have any unmercerized cotton left, I'm working with 5/2 mercerized cotton in teal and natural.

The End Of A Run

The contrast of periwinkle blue and a nice soft yellow for the final scarf in this run brings a fabulous finish to this series.  I am still working through a book on design work and haven't been completely thrilled with the curves that I've been designing.  Perhaps it's time to go back to the drawing board and select different colors for the weft.  



Since it has been a few years since I've woven towels, I think that I'm going to whip up a run of those next.  I've vowed not to purchase any more yarn until my stash is down at least 50% and I have plenty of cotton to work with.  Waffle weave is one of my favorite towel structures.  The way it's woven flat and bounces with 'almost' uncontrollable texture after wet finishing.....oh.....and not to add that they are super soft and absorbent.  Yeah...I think it's time for a run of waffle weave towels :)  See ya!


Handwoven Store Up and Running!!!

Well, mission accomplished!  The Hand Woven store is up and running with some items that I've worked on recently.  The intent being to have a bit of variety and a splash or two of color.  There are some shibori scarves, chenille scarves, tencel scarves...scarves, scarves, scarves.  Just in time for this year's holiday season!














Yes.  Of course, there are towels as well but, I'll be adding them at a later time.  The Etsy store can be located right from this page by scrolling to the top and selecting the Hand Woven Store tab.  Well, back to the loom! :)
