This last Tuesday after lunch she whispered, "Sit down here, I want to ask you something. How do I go about taking the lessons?" So, I explained to her about the classes. Most people start out with the 6 classes, and then they are hooked and they just keep coming! That is how we get more weavers for the center. (That is what happened to me in 2001, after I was given a floor loom!)
Lou Ann and I picked out one of the smaller table looms to get ready for her. The problem is, it was used for kids camp, and has a couple of yards of the mug rug warp left on it. We thought it might be a good idea for her to weave that off using fabric strips, just to try it out.
I will take the bag of strips to her today before I go out of town, once again. I am ordering replacement lever tabs for the loom, and I need to get her a couple of shuttles to work with before I take it to her. Our fellow weaver Carl lives in the same complex that she does, in fact they are on the same floor! So that, even if I am unavailable, I know that he would be able to help her.
I think that next Tuesday, I will be showing her the ropes on this sweet little loom!
Here's to a new weaver, until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
