Saori Santa Cruz stuff

This is a short blog with lots of different activity. Here are my two latest loom bags for Saori folding looms  pipping hot from my sewing room to replenish the stock.. loom bag section of my etsy shop
"Moroccan blue"


Oh how I love my Nancy's Knit Knacks swift/skeinwinder! It is  reasonably price since it is a fraction of the cost  of an expensive  $800 spining wheel with ball Bearings  but it is built was well! It's base rotates. The greatset thing is it holds over a huge 1lb skein and does not groan or catch while winding a ball. I have had mine for 4 years but I must say it was the the best well spent money I spent on ball winding  and swift equipment. My wrists and arms thank me….

  Here in my Etsy shop NKK SWIFT HERE

  My darling  little  used glimakra 27" Ideal loom sold to a local super nice weaver. I will miss it, but  it found a very good  new home and now the space can be expanded to my spining class room and gallery

  We had our November Maven's of the fiber forest ravelry group meeting at a local members home it was lovely and so fun..

The Santa Cruz Weavers Guild had there first ever Guild sale last week. I did not participate but I went to show support. They did really well.  Good going guys!

 Fall and much needed rain has come finely to northern california. I moved the yarn dress forms and spinning wheels and looms  away from our wood stove and…… this morning  in the wee hours my husband Lee lit the woodstove fire ! This is our only central heat… it feels soooo good..

Peaceful weaving in the costal redwoods
