Mirrix Looms are sponsoring a Summer Weaving Challenge again this summer.
https://mirrixlooms.com/pages/2022-summer-weaving-challenge for all the info.
I am going to be leading the Challenge for the week of August 8th – 14th.
I’ll be adding to the inspiration by posting all kinds of fun weaving projects with a focus on the magic of frame looms.
I am featuring the Mirrix Saffron and as a sweet little treat, I’m also going to be using the Baby Duo from Hello! Looms. (
If you don’t have a copy of my book Innovative Weaving on the Frame Loom, it’s available at Mirrix looms in their ‘Starter Packages’ section of their shop. Here’s the link:
It’s FULL of great how to’s and other deliciousness. Small loom weaving is perfect for summer.
It’s going to be fun!
Last week I enjoyed a wonderful weave along and slide show workshop on the zoom platform from the Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Arts department at the University of Wisconsin.
The presenter was Laura Demuth. She was a lovely presenter- gracious and so well informed!
I am still swooning about the beautiful textiles that she showed slides of…. Scandianvian weaving is glorious!
I was delighted that the workshop participants were sent a sweet little loom from Hello!Loom.
When mine arrived in the mail, the first thing I did was to weave a little dress for tiny Willow, a doll that I carved a few months ago.
I started weaving the lady with flowers tapestry during the presentation as Laura demonstrated common motifs used in Scandinavian weaving. I finished the tiny tapestry the next day.
It was a lovely event and my thanks to all the people who worked so hard to make it happen!
