Another Exciting Guild Meeting

Jane shared some roving she had dyed. The green is purple hart wood. The red is madder. The gray is Alkanet. The pink is the exhaust bath from the madder.  She used alum as her mordant. She will have some wonderful wool to spin this fall.

Larry shared a doublewidth blanket he just finished. It's excellent!! And he also brought some hooks he made with his blacksmithing skills.  

Vicki did the program on FABRIC ANALYSIS.  We tried to determine the warp direction, picks per inch and ends per inch. Then mark the tie-up for each weft pick and even keep track of color changes.
