Bateman continues

Diane and I continued exploring Bateman weaves at the Mannings - this time focusing on Multi Tabby weaves.

I’m hoping to label our samples this week and have them ready before the next show.

MidWest Weavers Conference

Still a few weeks off but we’ve started skeining yarn and getting together the boxes. A bit more dyeing yet too. We’re hoping to get more silks dyed. Keep an eye out for some very, very fine silk! We haven’t tried dyeing this yet, but have high expectation of these yarns…

Maryland Sheep and Wool Recap

This is the most relaxing of all our shows. Yes, I know it can be a madhouse… but it’s close to home. Diane even sleeps in her own bed every night! I stay with a college friend up by the fairgrounds. In the old days that meant staying up talking and going to bed in the wee hours of the morning. Neither of us can do that anymore!
All set-up and ready to go –

Looks like lots of room to move around the booth….until

We each drive a car – so more space for yarn! No worries if we forget something and if we guessed wrong what this year’s big seller is, we can restock for Sunday. This year there were many more weavers. Great to see!

My daughter came up Friday after work to help out. She’s been working a booth with me at Maryland since she was a teenager… so I guess that qualifies as a tradition!

We enjoyed seeing old friends. Lots of weavers came by. It was great to see everyone who makes this show so great!
