The colour of these shawls is more green than grey but apparently my ipad didn't 'read' it that way.
When I fringe twist, I don't hemstitch on the loom. I just weave in 'waste' yarn to keep things in place until I can get the twisting done.
After wet finishing, I then trim the frayed bit off to make the fringe look neater. The untrimmed fringe is above, the trimmed below.
Doug got a lot of pressing done yesterday so today I'm trying to 'finish' as many things as I can because he needs to start packing the inventory up into shipping boxes for transport to our first show - Artisans of the North at UNBC Oct. 27/28. The following weekend will be Studio Fair Nov. 2, 3, 4. Both of those shows are here at home. We then have a week to prepare for the show in Calgary - Art Market, Nov. 15-18. The 'final' show of the year will be the guild room sale. This is where I will deeply discount end-of-line designs, 'seconds', as well as offer some current work at 'regular' price.
In between Calgary and the guild room sale I will head off to visit with my editor to do the final line edits, make sure everything is as 'perfect' as we can make it and then - deep breath - push publish.
Once I'm home from that trip I have promised to weave some more samples for Tien Chiu's on line class
In the meantime work on the conference continues. We are still looking at opening registration sometime in January.
