Well, a whole website. Come check it out http://fixthetaxtreaty.org/
Yes, I’ve been busy lately. Mainly I’ve been working on http://fixthetaxtreaty.org which will be launched tomorrow morning. You can also find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/FixTheTaxTreaty/
There hasn’t been much time for weaving in the past few months. In February I went to a weaving camp run by the Gold Coast & Hinterland Spinners & Weavers. The camp was essentially a 2.5 day class on twill weaving taught by Kay Faulkner. I learned quite a bit about twill structures and how to draft twill patterns. Prior to the class, I warped up my table loom with some 4-ply cotton in four different twill threadings. The part on the right contains the samples we wove in class – a wide variety of patterns with only 5-10 cm per pattern (except where I got carried away). The other two samples were woven after the class (mostly in the last month when things finally settled down enough that I had time to weave). Click on the pictures to see them full size.
In our recent home renovation, one of the spare bedrooms was re-purposed into a “Loom Room “.
Once the loom was in place, I wasted no time in warping up some cottolin tea towels.
I have now finished weaving 4 of the 8 tea towels in this warp, and am starting a new treadling pattern for the last 4.
I’m loving the wavy look of the new pattern.
