next place mat warp being threaded
With the new year come the pundits with their forecasts for what's going to be hot - or not.
On Facebook was an article about up and coming crafts. It was interesting to see the textile crafts being touted as 'hot' - the coil baskets, macrame, the....home looming.
Well, whatever you call it, I'm very happy to see that the 'experts' are predicting a resurgence of, erm, looming. Us old folk are getting, well, old. I for one am hoping to pass on some of my knowledge before I'm too, erm, old, to, um, loom.
This past week I got not one but two phone calls from wannabe weavers. I already posted a photo of the results of the first, and today another one came to the guild room to give it a go.
I think she's hooked.
