It's amazing how much time I have for picture taking when I don't teach...
Anyway, here's the rest of Saturday...(and again, sorry that some of the pics are less than wonderful- it's the photographer, not the camera).
Here's where we were- a wonderful big old building at a Youth Camp. The morning started out beautiful and clear, but by evening, it was sprinkling and dreary. Outside that is, inside it was wonderful.
I went up into the loft to get a shot of the spinning circle below. Look at all those spinning wheels!
The longer shot shows the tables, more looms, and the kitchen.
Sara gave a presentation on the history of women in Fiber Arts.
While she spoke, I finished spinning a little batt of wool and silk and sparkle. In this crowd, it is not considered rude to spin and listen at the same time.
Here's a shot I should have included yesterday- Connie taking warp off the warping board, as Jill watches.
And another one I overlooked yesterday- Marie and Lyla warping a rigid heddle loom.
Kelley did some organic dyeing. Look at those wonderful colors!
Betty showed off a few of her little weave-it squares. Most were made from handspun yarn. She makes the most adorable flowers with these squares.
I won a Nostipinne as a door prize. It was made by woodcrafter David Lindquist
. Don't know what a Nostipinne is? It's a device for winding a center pull yarn ball, like so.
I have always wound my center pull balls with a ball-winder or by hand- it will be lovely to have this tool at my disposal.
Next year, I hope to stay the whole weekend, or at least overnight. I missed out on the evening shenanigans (pajamas and wine... woohoo!)
For another take on the Weaving Weekend, check out Connie P's blog
. She stayed the whole weekend, and her pictures are much better than mine!
I just had a good camera and, of course, having the whole weekend helps. I never thought to go up and get a bird's eye view. That is really great.
What an amazing weekend you had! I love the yarn you spun!
