The presentation was 6:30-7:30 with spinning class from 7:30-8:30. We actually ended at 9:40 or so. By the time I got back to my room it was almost 10. I am wrung out. Basically I was "ON" from 6pm until when I got in my car between 9:40 and 10p... Read more

I started another project today. It is one that has been on my mind for a few weeks (I purchased the kit a long time ago) as I have been clearing out emails off and on. An email from the company links to a few videos to explain some stitches in ... Read more

I am a good weaver. Some have said a great weaver. You could not tell that from my last project started at the village! Threading a two-shaft loom, you have only two choices of where to put a thread: on shaft one or shaft two. Well, I screw... Read more
