Show Me Yours!

Another wonderful guild meeting with lots of show and share. Most of the members of this guild have four shaft looms, but what an exciting group of ladies and gents. From large blankets to mug rugs to towels and beyond....... I think you will enjoy this sampling of their work.

Larry has been weaving waffle weave towels. Here is one washed and one not. You can see how the cells pop once it is washed.

Barbara has been doing some felting. Here is her awesome purse and long vest. She is taking felting to a whole 'nother level!!!

Katie created another wonderful rug. Now how did she do that??? I think we need a program on her technique. 

Katie has also finished another blanket. This one is for a son.

And not to keep her shuttles still, Katie wove towels too.

Vicki used my dimity draft and wove some towels.

Not to stop at the dimity towels, Vicki then produced these color and weave towels.

Bo created three one-of-a-kind scarves. They feel yummy.

Bo also brought two shawls but one of the photo's didn't turn out. This has great drape.

Jane has been busy weaving rugs. 

Jane had also been experimenting with different wefts and now has several samples for her library.   

Sam wove a long warp with several towels and one section of bookmarks. She used 11 different yarns at once. She said it was an adventure and she didn't think she would try that again. 

Sam also brought this great rug. Check out the back side.
