I took a little piece of weaving from the loom this week, it’s the first time I’ve tried inlay weaving. I also have used the overshot technique to trap the yarns. I’m very happy with the outcome, but I’m back to scarves as I would ideally like to weave larger cushions than 12″. 😊
I was so greatful to receive a custom order this week. I couldn’t resist posting some photos of all the beautiful colours. I enjoy adding them into my own weaving work on my small table loom. I have so many new colours to add to the Etsy Shop this weekend.
My first fair f 2017 was lovely. I had so many visitors it was a little overwhelming. My best moment was when Ruth Gough (Winghams Wool Works) purchased and walked away wearing one of my scarves. She teaches spinning and weaving and supplies many outlets with their wool roving. Looking at my stall I’m definitely wanting to concentrate a little more on the weaving for a bit. I’d like to see more scarves, purses and perhaps some cushions.
Are you preparing for any fairs this year?
My first Makers fair is in two days time and I just wanted to share one of the bags I had finished today. It features my hand woven cloth and an oil cloth bottom. The handle is PU (I’m vegetarian and don’t like to use leather) and I included a zip fastener. Between all the weaving, cutting, sewing these bags are a real labour of love. I have made two larger versions I haven’t had chance to photograph yet but I might wait until I can get some photos of the stall at the fair.
Both me and my sister are doing a spring fair in March so my knitting projects have taken a backseat to my weaving. I have lots of new yarns dyed up to but I’ll be adding them after the fair! I have been weaving much more recently and have decided to upgrade to a sectional warp beam set up on my loom. More about that another day. I’ll be posting some photos of the stall set up as I have a nice wooden table top rail I can’t wait to use/see with my scarves on it.
Are you doing any craft fairs this year?
