Archive for the ‘weaving’ Category

I have been on the hunt for a small “portable” or table top loom ever since I took a weaving class several months ago. I really enjoyed weaving and think about it all the time but with little knowledge of looms and of weaving itself I didnt feel comfortable buying a new fancy loom. I had been searching craigs list and newspapers online with no luck. Well the other day I bumped into a woman who I have taken some fibers classes with a few years ago and mentioned to her that I was searching for an affordable table loom. she put me in touch with a good friend of hers who just so happened to have a Leclerc table loom in her garage that was lonely. This woman was so friendly and welcoming to me. She told me that she would be happy to loan this old loom to me so that I may become familiar with weaving and was just happy to have someone to love it again. She invited me to her home to pick it up and she talked to me about weaving and helped me to remember how to dress the loom, she is absolutely the nicest person I have met in years! The kind of person that makes you happy for days. So thank you Phillippa for being so generous, trusting and wonderful!!!! here are some photos of my new friend, I havent yet had the chance to dress him (Mr. Leclerc) but am hoping to do so next week or this weekend after the craft fair. I am so excited to start playing I just cant wait!!

I realized that There are a few works that I finished up and never posted. so here they are.

string quilt, hand dyed cotton. machine pieced and quilted.

hand woven scarf. Bamboo yarns.


As soon as I get my camera back I will be posting the scarf since I overdyed it as well as a small series of quilts I did entitles “Quilts for the American People During Terror”  a sarcastic series of five mixed media quilts. I will also be posting about a new series I am struggling with.  Its in the very beginning stages and needs lots more thought, research and feedback.  

I am heading to Florida to enjoy a quick vacation: take in art at Ringling Museum and get some work by artist Tomas Garcia. I’ll be back here in a few days!
