S & W On Four - Workshop-Day 1

They came from far and near, set up their looms and we got busy. Some were new to summer and winter (single two-tie) and others had done a little with the weave structure. We started with a lecture on just what this weave structure was and were shown examples of what it can do.

Dawn and Larry get ready..

Then after lunch and before we got 'down to business', we had Show and Tell.

Then we  treadled in 1-1-1-1 tie down order and  a-a-b-b tabby order. We also treadled in 1-2-2-1 tie down order and a-b-a-b tabby order, (because that one is my favorite.....) I saw lots of questions marks on their faces, but by the end of the day, I saw lots of light bulbs going off.
