More progress today

The dark area that will move to the left and define the large stone below it has started.  I'm eager to move above it and tackle the next challenges of new stones.

On the teaching side of life, I have the Florida Tropical Weavers Conference lined up for next March.  The dates are March 20-22, 2015 at Lake Yale Conference Center.  Three teaching dates are now planned for 2015 and that will be about it for the schedule, I think.  Although possibly there will be a couple of one day workshops here in north Georgia that my friend, Pat Williams, and I might host... we'll see.

This weekend is one of the festival weekends in Dahlonega.  This time around it's Bear on the Square--link to that event is here.  It's one of my favorites and the weather looks great--so I'll be strolling around tomorrow, buying stuff and listening to good music!


  1. Hi Tommye, you posted some photos of the worm gear modification you made to your loom in a post some time ago. I am exploring with someone about doing the same to my Tissart. Is it possible for you to email me the photos of the project? tangledthreads at telus dot net
    Thanks so much, Trish White

  2. Trish,
    I purchased the worm gear from Fireside Looms since the Ruthie is very much like the Traditional Tapestry loom that Fireside makes. I'll see what photos I have that might be helpful to you and send to your email later.
