I know it will help but it certainly has made things sore right now. For months the IT Band on my right leg has been tight but it was gradually getting better as I worked on it with foam rolling. But then my knee/foot went totally wonky when I w... Read more

For the last number of years in September at the Fall Festival I would have the same thoughts: "I'm weaving here and I really enjoy it so why cannot I get my loom threaded up at home to weave there?????" I now am threaded! I am weaving! I a... Read more
