Today I added a new page to my blog ~ a for sale page! I have no idea how I’ve managed to acquire so much stuff! Please have a quick look because there are some real bargains to be had.
On a much more interesting note last Saturday we went to the Fiber Fair in
and had a great time visiting
all the booths. Campbell River
I was especially happy to find a booth for The Weavers Atelier. They are so new toI was so happy to get my hands on 16 ounces of 2/20 silk because dyeing season is almost here and I love to paint the silk, although I still haven't finished weaving last years batch of silk warps.
Island that they haven’t opened yet, but lucky for me they brought
some weaving yarn with them. Linda is also the Guild of Canadian Weavers
current president and it’s great to have such a strong West Coast presence in
I also found some Brassards 2/8 unmercerized cotton in a stunning peacock blue/green and the navy to cross it with…..I’m seeing tea towels on the horizon.
The weather here continues to be cool and rainy, but that’s just fine by me as it keeps me at the loom.I am about 2 yards into the Lynch family tartan and so far, so good although I’ve had every problems know to a weaver ~ mis-selying, mis-threading; basically if I could make a mistake I did! But, doesn't it look lovely!
