Mother-Daughter Retreat

Last month kind of whizzed by … but, there were many highlights, one of them being a Mother and Daughter who came to visit and have a SAORI retreat together.

Suzanne had contacted me about a retreat and I found out that she has woven with Mihoko at SAORI Worcester, Yukako at Loop of the Loom and Laura at SAORI Studio LA! So, I was so happy that she added SAORI Salt Spring to her SAORI thread…

We had so much fun. Suzanne made three different warps – the first had mixed textures and was a very wide warp – she wanted to try both of these things. The results are so beautiful…

It was her mom’s first time weaving. I always love seeing the process of discovery – of mixing colours and textures and exploring SAORI. More beautiful results…

and she enjoyed it!

She has done a lot of sewing and tailoring and so tried her hand at the SAORI way…

Judy (who is an amazing felter) was able to join us one morning and she finished a weaving she had been working on using lots of her felting supplies. We have been talking about how SAORI and felting might mix together in interesting ways! You can see more of her wonderful work on her website

    Once again, so amazing to see other people’s colour combinations! It would be so much fun to see what you and Judy could come up with together. I love the pink and grey together….more inspiration! So glad you’ve had some more studio time.
