Saori Saltspring is hosting a virtual Saori Kai

My dear friend, Terri Bibby, of Saori Saltspring, is hosting a virtual Saori Kai: LINK

Which is what?

A Saori Kai is a gathering of Saori weavers so they can learn from one another and share their discoveries and see what each weaver is up to.

Terri hosts Saori Kais in Victoria, BC, but due to health issues (please send Terri lots of healing love and light and energy!), Terri needs to have the Saori Kai online this month.

This is lovely for those of us who are not near Victoria – it allows us to participate virtually.

And here is my contribution to this month’s Saori Kai:

Woven on my Saori floor loom, Toshi-san, who  came to Canada from Japan about 30 years ago.

These two banners were originally one piece, but I cut it in half because I wanted to turn them to have the images oriented correctly.

Here’s a closer look at the surface embellishment:

I posted a video tutorial explaining how I do the chain stitch embellishment here:

Even though these two banners are now off the loom, I still consider them to be ‘WIP’s (works in progress), as there is a lot that remains to be done to and with them.

And, that hasn’t quite revealed itself to me, yet, so I will have to wait until the inspiration ‘ripens’.

Until then, happy weaving, and joy in all that you do! 🙂
