Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild tapestry class begins...

Yesterday dawned bright and breezy--perfect late winter day to start a new tapestry class here at my studio in Dahlonega. Five have enrolled and we warped my AB copper pipe looms during the morning, then began weaving in the afternoon. I'm loaning the looms so the students can continue with the weaving throughout the week. We'll meet again next Saturday for another all day session.

The photos show everyone squeezed into my studio around a long table and a short one at the end. I bought additional PVC fittings to make legs for these looms, as I'd done for a couple of the frame looms when I taught the Arrowmont class last fall. The legs really are handy as they allow the loom to stand on the table.

Here's hoping the five will have time to get several inches into their tapestries before class next Saturday!

    They worked really, really hard! I'm looking forward to next Saturday.
