This is my beautiful Mother. She left us 4 years ago today. I had just barely begun weaving but she told me that it was something I HAD to do. She has been a constant inspiration on this journey and I thank you, Mom, from the bottom of my heart for believing in me. I miss you, not only today, but everyday. I loved you more than words can say 💔#inspiration #love #loss #fuckcancer

I really thought that this 10/2 cotton warp that I dyed would be a total disaster but I LOVE the way it’s weaving up! I’m weaving it in plainweave and using a teal 10/2 cotton for the weft. Since I’m weaving at night, again, you can’t really see the amazing depth of color, but I promise, it’s there! Can’t wait to cut this off the loom!!!! #lsgcrafts #weaving #handwoven #weaversofinstagram #loom #floorloom #dorsetloom #warp #handdyedwarp #weft #fiber #yarn #cotton #color #plainweave #dyersofinstagram #handdyedyarn #blue #green #textiledesign #textiles #plainweave #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #handmade

Hello Fall! Here is one of the gorgeous 8/2 tencel warps that Kathrin Weber dyed for me. With all the beautiful colors of the autumn leaves 🍁 I decided to go with a leaflike pattern. I tried several different wefts but finally decided to go with a mustard yellow cottolin. I’m weaving upside down (to minimize my tie up) but, so far, I’m happy with the result 😁 #lsgcrafts #weaving #handwoveon #weaversofinstagram #fiber #yarn #tencel #cottolin #warp #weft #textile #textiledesign #color #pattern #handwoventextiles #handdyed #fall #autumn #handwovenscarf #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #fallleaves #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles

So about a month ago, I wound this 14 yard warp and got it on the loom. Since then, I’ve been up to my eyeballs in tartan. Ive only been able to weave after work at night ( that’s why the lighting in these pictures is terrible 😩) It hasn’t taken me this long to weave a warp in years! This is Brown Sheep Fingering Wool sett at 20 epi. I’m finally nearing the end and couldn’t be more excited to get all this tartan finished! After it all comes off the loom I’m going to overdye it to get the exact color I want #lsgcrafts #weaving #weaver #handwoven #loom #floorloom #warp #weft #fiber #yarn #wool #tartan #plaid #twill #color #texture pattern #textiles #textiledesign #brown #tan #babyblue #weaversofinstagram #dyersofinstagram #headedforthedyepot #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #handmade #howitsmade #handmadeinbuckscounty #buckscountyartist

So I didn’t share the 1st warp I dyed yesterday because I thought it would be a total disaster, but after rinsing it, I am pleasantly surprised. These pictures show the undyed 10.5 yd 6/2 cotton warp; what it looked like before I rolled it up & threw it in a bag because I thought it was terrible and what it looks like after rinsing. Now I can’t wait to weave with it! The last picture also shows the gorgeous autumnal warps in 8/2 Tencel dyed by Kathrin. She is just a dyeing phenom!!!! #lsgcrafts #weaver #weaving #handwoven #weaversofinstagram #fiber #yarn #warp #cotton #color #texture #tencel #dyeing #handdyed #dyersofinstagram #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #handmade #handmadeinbuckscounty

So today was our Kathrin Weber Dyeing workshop. Having relatively zero dyeing experience, this one has my head spinning. I dyed a few warps, the only one of mine that I shared here is the blue & green one. The 1st 3 pictures are of Kathrin dyeing two “sister” warps for me in several different colors that were all based in a rust brown. The last two are of her dyeing a gorgeous rainbow warp. Tomorrow I’ll rinse the warps and re-chain them. I can not emphasize enough what an incredible wealth of knowledge that Kathrin has to offer. She is just the best. Thank you Kathrin!!!!! #lsgcrafts #weaver #weaving #handwoven #fiber #yarn #cotton #tencel #dyeing #handdyed #handdyedyarn #color #colortheory #fiberdesign #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles #dyersofinstagram

More pictures from the workshop. 1st is a Ribb weave, 2nd 2 are of Rep weave with different wefts, 4th is Turned Taquete and the last one is the sample off the loom with a small piece of doublewidth fabric in front. I did the doublewidth so you can see both layers of the warp side by side. I used 3 different colored warp chains and tied them into a dummy warp in two layers (even shafts then odd shafts) with the design being improvised at the loom. #lsgcrafts #weaver #weaving #weaversofinstagram #handwoven #loom #floorloom #fiber #cotton #color #texture #pattern #textile #textiledesign #handwoventextiles #weavestructure #warp #weft #weavingworkshop #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles #makersgonnamake

Last piece on the warp. I changed the tie up....again😉This time I'm using a GORGEOUS linen from @gistyarn for the weft. Sarah was a great help to me when I was weaving my daughter's Tallit for her Bat Mitzvah last year. I've been wanting to order yarn from her for a long time and I am just thrilled with my order. Many more Gist Yarn projects on the way!!!! #lsgcrafts #weave #weaver #weaving #handwoven #loom #floorloom #ontheloom #fiber #yarn #cottolin #linen #color #texture #pattern #lace #wovenlace #hucklace #8shaft #tablerunner #woventablerunner #homedecor #handmade #textiles #textiledesign #handwoventextile #makersgonnamake #handmade #buckscounty #handmadeinbuckscounty #gistyarn
