In our March CHH program, I hope to increase your awareness of potential weaving designs found in everyday objects ever present in your environment. Design ideas are everywhere! I want to inspire you to look at simple objects and textiles with a new openness to their inspirational potential. For example, I have woven pieces using designs inspired by polymer clay buttons, tile patterns, and many other textiles.
If you have created a textile with a design or color scheme inspired by some kind of object or another textile, please bring it to share at our meeting. If possible, bring the object that inspired you as well. Tracy has warned me that I cannot bring any of my cats, even if their coloring inspired something wonderful.
Join us March 20 at Guild House, 4617 Montrose Blvd., 6:30pm.
Note from the Webweaver: We still have some spaces available in the Triaxial Weaving class at Guild House on March 21-22. Check it out here and join us!
I would like to sell my Louet Julia wheel. It is less than a year old. It comes with 4 bobbins and a lazy kate. I have all the paper work and instructions that came with it. I paid $700 would like to get $500 for it. My number is 832-864-2428.
From Rigid Heddle Weaving instructor D’Anne Craft: Irene L., was in my beginning rigid heddle class yesterday, and today she sent this photo of her finished table runner. She’s amazingly fast. I think she did a wonderful job for a first ever weaving project!
Irene’s Table Runner
The note from Irene L.: Now I am done and it’s a table runner…too wide for a scarf. I see on line that the cricket has a variable reed and a way to run another heddle which is kind of blowing my mind.
Thank you for being so open in your teaching hon. It was a great day!
