 my bobbin holder  here       on my piccolo loom was  indispensable  for all my color changes.

I met Antoinette's family and I am sooo happy that I helped and encouraged her to submit some of her amazing pieces. She has only been taking classes from me  and started  to weave since  Jan. of this year. Great work!!
