Today I met with the rep from the local Ukranian dance troupe. I've done fabric for them in the past, and they needed new fabric for skirts. They also needed sashes and headbands.
I wove the skirt fabric above several years ago. It's actually a lot more orange than the photo shows. They need 5 more skirts and 5 sashes. They also want 12 head dresses, but to match the sashes.
So I have to do some number crunching tomorrow and put a yarn order in. I already ordered the yarn for the skirts because they need this by the end of May and since I'll be away the last two weeks of May, it all has to be done before I leave for the Alberta conference in Olds.
This is the other skirt fabric I've done for them. Thankfully they didn't need any more of this right now as it's very fiddly with four shuttles and I would have been hard pressed to get this woven!
I've just beamed a 40 yard black warp for throws. Guess my goal of only working 3 hours a day is going to get set aside for the next 6 weeks............. :)
