Busy week with Saori Weaving classes and new colors of Saori ready made warps.

Cool rainy weather brings  focus for students  back inside for  Saori weaving and spining here in northern and central California .

  Christal came for a Saori hat class and she learned how to wind a warp thread and dress a Saori loom.

 Georganne bought a new SAORI WX60 FOLDING LOOM last week and came back with her new loom to learn how to thread a ready made warp .

Heather and Gina came for a try it class ( (more info click for scheduling classes) or email me

latter in the afternoon Cindy Christal's freind dropped by for a try it class and loved it so much she will be back tomorrow to finish her piece!

 well the class must of been a sucess because sGeorganne just sent me these photos of her first Saori weaving on her WX60 LOOM  and photos where she put put her Saori loom in her home. 


She wove 4 place mats, just georgeous, and she has  been weaving for less than  a month! now i want to weave some place mats don't you?  I love them Georganne!

well let me share with you a wonderful secret …. these Swedish reindeer pads for your loom bench.  Unlike wool sheep skin pads  there is an amazing healing componatnt to these reindeer pads. you can read more about them here in my Etsy shop pad description click here 
(reindeer in sweden are not an endangered species )
  I sell theses in studio and in my etsy shop.

there is so more but no more time …... Winter Solstice lights  need to go up…..
