|This is a close-up of a commission called "Sara's Harvest".|
The photo to right is of one of my 'event fabrics' and they take more time, but are worth it. They are very engaging while weaving them and the effects, after machine washing and machine drying is usually quite spectacular!
This fabric is popular for tops, skirts and shoulder scarves and is a very 'fluid' fabric...I think of rayon as "the water fiber" anyway and this fabric is just like that. It's lovely to wear.
$35-$42/yd. Margaret is so easy, fast, dependable and
And...also...I'm a fast, old weaver!
I acquired Margaret from a dear weaver who was the first and only owner and took the utmost care of her. I started weaving on her almost as soon as I got her, and put a 20/2 rayon warp on her which was inspired by the rayon scarves that I had been weaving for years on Arlene!
Then is when you will know that Margaret is my chameleon. All of this variety comes from the fact that I only put on 30ish yard lengths of warp on her until the last few, which number in the 60 yard range. Colors change rapidly, so ask for what's currently available. I can send photos!
I have had as many as 17 shuttles going in a yardage. As can be seen in the photo above, I need an extra table to hold all my shuttles! This way, I can easily keep them in order (adds to accuracy!) and I am able to pick them up quickly.
Now I'm a walking billboard.....only not so big!
I'll have to get a photo of me wearing it...if I can stand still long enough!
NOW, I'm a walking billboard!
Thanks for reading...
