Saori weaving day 2 of my OPEN STUDIOS show 2013

with even greater anticipation we prepared for day two. we were all set ready to go but for the first couple of hours it was eerily silent no traffic sounds it was a puzzlement. Then when people stated to show up we found out that the main road to the studio was closed down several hours due to a car accident and there was no way to go around it. That made for a more condensed full afternoon of  new attendees but they were all wonderful and loved it.

  Fun trying on my  Saori woven pieces was very active today. This is the  "amethyst sleeved  and pocketed ruanna/shawl"this is an unusual piece because it is wool and mohair,  with mostly hand spun weft yarns.
 It is now for sale at my etsy shop.
 Some other pieces sold and went home with excited buyers.

  I took some time away from my weaving demenstrations to sit down  and spin a bit too.

  1. ooooh, what a delight for the eyes! Your shop is amazing and one day I will travel across the country to visit it. Hopefully it was a successful open house and you have new customers and new artists ready to explore Saori.

  2. Thank you, i delight in seeing peoples expressions to the fiber arts. Every single attendee was positive . It was an amazing two days, a lot if work, but it was very well accepted . It is nice to have the studio return to normality and be teaching weaving and spinning again.
    Peaceful weaving
