people/sewing/weaving stuff

This blog is a mixture of students weavings, and sewing guild meeting, and people trying on my saori woven clothing and my new woven designs  so here it goes....
 Robins new weaving

 A new vest I wove designed and sewed. it is "called ice plant on the cliffs" it looks really great on robin.

 some more of robins weavings.

 our sewing guild was delighted to be introduced to Saori weaving . It is hosted at  a member's home that is very delightful and charming .

A few tried on my" tides edge" beach jumper that can be tied in the front and back with matching shrug . they really loved the loom and the feel and drape of the hand woven cloth in my clothing.

Tied in the front on one person

Tied in the back with the jacket/shrug on another member.

This member showed her sketches and designs  for a up coming play, she is a  stage costume designer.

 A woven and felted wool bag with leather handels I just finished

 and I want to show you jon's new saori weaving. The mint green textured weft is old nylon fishing nets that were  gathered by him when he found them washed ashore in Hawaii on his last trip there in February. Also white nets cut up as weft added as well. Just fantastic!

Peaceful weaving

  1. All of these projects are beautiful and inspiring.

    1. I love your dress Jill. And the fish netting is so fun! How creative of Jon to add it in. Is the rest of his weave also linked to Hawaii? The blue is so deep like the ocean, but the colors reminded me of sea life.


I Love to hear from my blog readers
