Stick Weaving

Lee has created a mat by weaving together her hand-spun and dyed wool.  The mat was woven on a stick weaving loom and then stitched together.  The hand woven wool was dyed various colours using black beans, onion peels, turmeric, avocados and flowers.  The result is a very thick, unique and rustic mat.

Bettina Warping Up

Bettina is warping up her Sampleit loom in preparation to make a garment.  Bettina loves her little loom and gets so much done on it.  This time a jacket.  The mess in the background is getting ready for our felting workshop.  By Lyn A.

Lyn’s Twill

Lyn brought in a long handwoven piece of twill fabric to show us how she avoids creases.  Instead of folding her lovely weaving, Lyn rolls it onto a sturdy cardboard cylinder and voila!  No more creases.
