I wove two new Saori place mats cheery and fun!
many students the last few weeks as well…
a Saori premade warp and using the Saori threading holder to thread away from the loom easily.
while she was threading
Georganne dropped by to chose some more yarns for next weavings with her new wx60 loom

Start them young weaving! with the Saori piccolo loom that adjust down lower three years old and can weave! this last couple of weeks adorable children I am teaching weaving to.
….and speaking of children weaving
Alyssia and 6 years old Dahlia are back for more classes on the saori looms
she got a tapestry loom for christmas and she wove me a little weaving and brought it ! so sweet!
Both mommy and daughter did amazing!
How is Leigh Ann doing on her new wx60 loom?
she bought a Saori inside set which allows her to share the loom with there 8 year old son so she brought the inside set and unfurled this weeks worth of weaving!
she took a application class where she learns weaving ideas in a sampler!
and me...still have the never ending sinus infection but progressing albeit slowly!
but I found short amounts of time and threaded up a piccolo loom. I wove some mug mats with hand spun yarns!
They are way to much fun!! I am weaving more … I used a saori ready made 50x20 cotton warp and threaded it in 2 dents, skip one all the way across with the 12.5 reed… that way it was a bit wider for mug size.
I used soak a no rinse wash and air dried them near the wood stove pressed them while still damp
I sewed a straight stitch on the sewing machine because one set had to short of fringe to tie easily.
Peaceful weaving in the redwoods
