Finishes and Starts
Take a look at the beautiful things our students are making!
A few campers finished their weaving this morning and started the finishing process. Here this student is learning how to hem stitch.
This student completed all her finish work and then decided to sew her scarf in half to turn it into a skinny scarf.
Isn't this scarf lovely?!
The same student immediately wanted to start her next project. She picked her warp and started measuring it out.
Another student finished all her weaving and started the hem stitching.
More hem stitching. These students should be so proud of themselves!
Of course we had break time and our new baby chicks were enjoying some play time.
Back to work and the measuring of the warp was finished, then it was wound onto the back beam. Now it is time to thread the heddle.
This scarf is just about done!! Tomorrow the weaving will be completed and the finish work will start.
After break, we took our dyed yarn and started winding it into balls.
This is what it looks like after it has been dyed but before we wind it.
Don't you just love how different each one turned out?
After finishing the scarf, it was time to start a new project. So it was time to learn how to measure warp.
The first warp is all tied on and the waste yarn has been woven. New weft yarn has been chosen and the real weaving will begin tomorrow. Can't wait to see what these campers will be up to tomorrow morning.
