 Angela's first woven piece off the loom! it is so it.

Jennifer stopped by to purchase a few weaving accessories and showed us her saori scarf .

Just enough time to learn to use the Saori Art Yarn maker you use with your saori bobbin winder on your loom or the saori desk top model

Donna  came for a first ever saori class, in fact the first time she ever did any fiber arts before ever! she wanted to weave a holiday cowl 


 for never doing anything with yarn  BEFORE this class she was amazing, with saori you do not have to have any prerequisites 

she had so much fun

she will  do the finish work on her cowl at home , it turned out so cute!

the north America  winter solstice is here. the daylight is the lowest, and shortest , i wish for all of you a renewal  centering as the light  slowly returns 

peaceful weaving in the santa cruz redwoods

This week Kerri took a day long class in weaving and learning how to thread a saori ready made warp, and use a saori inside set . we got some drop spindle spinning done in the class as well.

 saori clipping rods 

 so easy to use 

what a lovely first ever weaving 

having the right height bench is essential for good ergonomics i have two models in my etsy shop or comtacr me. 
 the Louet bench is for taller weavers 5'6" and up a bonus it will push inside the the ch60 loom with the 2" or higher height extenders when not in use.

 the glimakra benches are for all loom heights and differnt height weavers. it will not push inside the saori looms ,it is wider.

drop spinning
