I've been back about 3 weeks from 100% Design. It was a huge success this year, loads of contacts which I've been following up, and I got an order.
Here's an image of part of my stand, sadly the image of the lovely linen and wool window panel got another image save over, so I can't show it to you. But I'm taking all my pieces to a professional photographer at the end of the month. Hilary Shedel photographed all my "Anthurium" collection and swatches from previous projects so I know they will be great. She has had a lot of high profile clients and her specialism is dance!

I'm running a rigid heddle (Knitters Loom) weaving course this coming Week-end at Willington Old School, where I run my Monday evening class.
Over the two days of Saturday17 and Sunday 18 October, from 10am to 4pm, you will learn to make warps and weave on a rigid heddle loom, which is ideal for those who want to dip their toe into the Weaving Adventure! On the Saturday you will learn to quick warping method to warp the loom and weave a scarf and on Sunday you will learn to make a warp before warping, use that warp to warp the loom and try one of a number of different finger manipulated weaves to make a second scarf or a sash or a table runner!
The price for the week-end includes tuition, use of equipment, all materials, refreshments and lunch and is £120. I have two spare places, so if you are interested in booking a place or would like to know more, please contact me at the following website: http://spinningandweaving.weebly.com/contact-me.html If you leave me your telephone number I will ring you back to answer your question or take your booking.
The images show some of the things that can be made on a rigid heddle loom, to whet your appetite.
