If I taught a workshop/seminars at ANWG '19 would you be interested?

Carrots



Janet Dawson (The Bobbin Tree, Sydney, NS) calls these the 'bunny eared bags of delight'.  This is how Maurice Brassard ships large orders of yarn.

I have had to be stern with myself and leave it sitting like a carrot (get it?) and organize my studio, complete some priority stuff on my job list (still one more I'm procrastinating over). and just generally leave it alone until I have a better grasp of what absolutely needs to be slammed onto either of the looms first.  Decisions, decisions!

The good news is that I have wet finished the two pieces of fabric off the sample warp, and surprise!  The one I was going to keep for holiday runners appears to more closely meet the requirements so I'll send both off tomorrow and see what the designer says.

I have also found a source of spun hemp and hemp/cotton at a price that I could actually resell it - if it weaves up as nicely as I'm thinking it will.  The sample order went in today and I will let you know how it works out.  If I decide to sell some of it, it would become available in the spring on approximately 8 ounce cones.  (Like I really needed to increase my stash - I have to buy 50 kilos of each kind of yarn to get a good price!  Looks like I won't be giving up the annex any time soon?)

Now I really really need to deal with that group email regarding the tour in Jan/Feb....
