Weaving weekend completed. Everyone was very productive, and I think they enjoyed themselves. They each left with three completed projects. Rugs, table runners. The cats entertained, got in the way, followed us around, and generally liked having company.
And now I have to get back to work this week. I have orders in line. Hip to Be Square Looper Loom kits to put together. Lots to do.
I am going to have to rustle up some help with two 6x9 rugs. I can do a 4' wide loom by myself with the help of my rolling chair, but a 6' one is just too much. Gotta have that second person catching the shuttle on the other end.
Maybe it is time to look for another apprentice, even though Tammy will be a hard act to follow.
Someone who wants to learn to weave, who will cut fabric, wind warp, do some weaving, and just about anything else that needs to be done. A little money, a lot of free information and education.
Someone with a good attitude, who doesn't whine, who likes to be busy.
I could put it on Craig's List, but oh my, I can just imagine the responses I might get.
Tammy just walked in one day, and said she was bored.
What are the chances that could happen again?
Off to the hot tub..........later.
