Ten days ago, on Saturday, I hosted my 2016 Spring Open Studio Day, for visitors to come to my home/studio and observe the weaving process, ask questions, chat with others, view and purchase finished work. Busy day, and lots of fun for all parties though yours truly was truly fatigued at the end of the day.
Like I say . . . . had a good time.
All the photographs in this post were taken by my friend Danette Sulgrove, so I could have a record of the day but keep my nose to the grindstone. Lots of pictures follow, with minimal explanation.
Cheap toilet paper, ready to be woven in as a “header” at the beginning of the entire process ~

Error correction in process ~
Weaving underway ~
Border done, and on into the patterned portion ~
It was, as I said, a good day. There’ll be another — the Summer one — on Saturday, July 9. Perhaps you’ll be able to join me.
