One of my NGCSU students on Halloween! She is indeed a "Superweaver"... I have a great class this semester. We meet from 5:30 to 8:20 p.m., twice a week. The semester is nearing the end and everyone has lots remaining to do!

This young woman is taking her third class and has been exploring multi-shaft summer & winter weave. She's also been dyeing warps.

The other advanced weaver has her Senior Show on display currently. Her emphasis was lace weaves, as used in function in tablecloths, napkins, place mats, runners, and a large curtain. She's also explored dyeing of warps during this semester.

Enrollment for spring semester, an upper level class, is at 9 now. There will be one or two who drop by the beginning of the class, but I may also pick up one or two more. The administration has approved the purchase of five more looms from another university that's scaling back on its weaving program. If that does indeed take place, I'll have looms available for both beginning and upper level students during the same semester.

I delivered my work to Piedmont Craftsmen on Thursday; the jury takes place on Friday, the 16th around 2 p.m. I'll be attending the fair to demonstrate tapestry on Saturday and Sunday, and also be in the group applicant booth for a stint or two during the weekend. I'll pick my work up at the end of the fair. I'm not sure how long it will take to learn if I've gotten accepted into the organization.
