Thanks for sharing, Jennifer!

I'm eager to see your wedge weave that you just posted recently in person! Will Mark be at the July Craft Guild Fair? And will you be with him? And, if so, which day--I won't be doing a demo but will most likely be at the Fair for a day.

Here's what I've been doing this week--posted at my blog at this link. And, more about that at my teacher, Bhakti Ziek's blog.

What an amazing experience for me!! Just spending time with such an legend in the weaving world--Bhakti Ziek--and being able to bounce ideas back and forth was almost more than I can take in. I'm certainly not giving up tapestry--in the sense that it's plain weave, weft-faced, discontinuous weft weaving--with this experience. But to have the opportunity to see and develop clearer understanding about the TC-1 loom, and the process of designing for it that Bhakti and Alice Schlein have developed is such a pleasure.


  1. Thanks for the encouragement on the weaving. I'm looking forward to seeing what becomes os it myself. In a way it's morphing - on the loom and in my head. I'm curious to see what the fabric will turn out to be.

    James will not be showing at the July Craft Fair this year. We haven't thought that far ahead about attending, but I'm sure we'll give it some thought!

    I just finished your link about the TC-1 experience. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it. I can't imagine you leaving "traditional" weaving, but could see an incredible blending coming out.

  2. I don't know why I called James - "Mark" - in the post... guess I was thinking about our godson, Mark, when I was writing!
