I fell into weaving - a friend called to tell me about a loom in the Twin Cities going cheap. We went in and bought it. I enjoy sewing and other tasks with fiber, so why not? Ken put it together, a friend showed me how to make string heddles, Ken made some missing wood pieces, I took a class at the Weavers Guild in Minneapolis and that was it.
Now I am working on my second loom acquisition a sturdy rug loom with the capability of a long warp to weave many rugs. I had LOTS of denim so I warped it in a series of colors I thought would enhance denim and I took a dyeing class at the Weavers Guild and over dyed some denim. Last year I had a bad rip in the apron I patched and patched again recently and it seems to be holding.
Here are some views of what I am working on right now. Denim and over dyed denim on an ORCO rug loom Ken got for me by bidding a bit higher than I was willing to bid at an auction years ago
