With the holiday rush over, it has been time for us to prepare our 2008 season. We are planning on some really great shows this year and will be updating the events page on the main site with all of the information. Be sure to bookmark that page for times, dates, and, directions to our up coming shows.
Our first line up will be at the Wurtsboro Art Alliance in Wurtsboro, N.Y. on March 15th 2008 from 12noon to 4pm. I will be demonstrating rug weaving on an antique Weaver's Friend Counterbalance Loom. It was my first loom and has been sitting for quite some time unused. I'm very excited to bring it down to the gallery, get it dressed, and weave a rag rug on it.
We may possibly also be going 'on tour' in the Hudson Valley to a chain of retirement homes which are open to the public with our yarn selection but will have more information on that as the time gets closer. Again, stay posted to the events page:)
As you can see by the pictures from Etsy on this blog page, we have resorted to keeping the Etsy store stocked with our hand spun yarns. I may possibly open a second Etsy store for handwoven items in September......again, stay posted;)
Here is a picture of the latest weaving project.
This is a waffle weave variation using silver and gold tencel in a double wide scarf. Once it was off the loom and finished, the waffle weave gave just a slight amount of texture. The tencel gave this stole a wonderful shine, a silky drape, and it is super light. And........it has already sold;)
