Sarasota, Day Two

Spent the day talking about issues of efficiency and what that might mean to each of the participants.  Then demo'd how I dress the loom.  Some of the people tried out what I do (threading) and tomorrow we'll finish up with how to wind a warp on a board, wind pirns/quills/bobbins.  There are two looms dressed so people can also try holding and throwing the shuttle the way I do. 

Some of the people were in the workshop here last year and said that the changes that they made after my demo then have allowed them to weave faster.  :)

Tomorrow afternoon I'm presenting a slide show of the work of some of the master weavers from the Guild of Canadian Weavers certificate program.
