A few months ago, I was wishing for another apprentice, since Tammy left me for a real job.
Then "L" appeared, retired from her full time employment, and said she thought she wanted to try it.
She has been working hard at it since then, and she has made a lot of progress.
Even though she has been in a few of my random photos, she declined to be on my blog.
She took some place mats home, to tie fringe. And even though she protests that she is not a "cat person", you can see that she is not being entirely truthful.
I have taught a lot of people to weave, usually over a short period of time.
An apprentice is different, learning things along the way, helping out with all kinds of chores.
It is a good way to learn, no pressure, no stress. There is time to get comfortable with the process, and time to get it right.
I don't know how long it will take to teach her all she wants/needs to know, but it great to have help, and it is a trade off that works out for both of us.
One of these days, we'll get her Weavers Friend warped up, in her barn, and she can be as crazy as I am.
