Loomsday – A Day in the Life of Looms 2015

Happy New Year – 2015 – Year of the Sheep! Meg (in Nelson, New Zealand) has written a blog post on Unravelling asking people to post photos of their looms on New Year’s Day. I thought it would be fun to do and so here are my looms… In the house I have one of […]

And now for something completely different …

So, after returning from a New Zealand springtime and the richness of the blues and greens and so inspired by so many beautiful places, I went to my studio to weave. There on the loom was an autumn coloured warp that I had made before I left.   Surprisingly, it called to me and I […]

Weaving Connections

As many of you know already I had an extended trip to New Zealand recently. It was wonderful to reconnect with family and friends there and also to enjoy some springtime weather while winter was approaching on Salt Spring Island.   Another thing that I was able to do while I was in New Zealand […]

Tuesdays with Tara

I wanted to share some of Tara’s weaving with you. Tara has been weaving at SAORI Salt Spring and at home for 4+ years. She takes to heart Misao-sensei’s message of “Weave Every Day”. We work together at the studio to make warps to keep her weaving – she chooses the most amazing colours…   […]

SAORI in September

Fall has arrived, cooler weather and a bit of rain – but still beautiful days. The studio is busy with many weavers and a lot of inspiration. Here is Jane who came to weave a scarf. She brought along some yarns she had chosen and started weaving – she was surprised when she stopped that […]

Time flies!

It was in 2012 that I started to weave some fabric for our dining room chairs (I didn’t know how long it had been so I looked up my post here!). I used cottolin – a blend of cotton and linen for the weaving and colours that are in our living/dining room. My original thought […]

Weaving on Yellow

A while ago, Willow asked me to make a yellow warp for her to weave a small mat with denim strips that she had been cutting up…   She came and wove the mat and it turned out really well…   And, there was some warp left and so she came back to weave some […]

Loom Dancer

With much anticipation and excitement, the Loom Dancer Weaving Odyssey on Salt Spring is now in full swing. Today is Salt Spring Market day and so all are off for a day of visiting artists and farmers at the market. We’ve done so much already, starting with a tour of the SAORI Salt Spring studio […]

SAORI in July

This month is wonderfully busy with SAORI weaving – classes, workshops, retreats and Zen Weaving Days. I just thought I’d share a few photos of warps and weavings being created lately – with many more to come! I think the photos will say it all…   This week is also the 2014 SAORI International Conference […]

The Joy Coat – SAORI Connections coast-to-coast

HAPPY CANADA DAY! I thought that this story would be a good celebration of Canada Day. It is a story of Coast-to-Coast SAORI connections. It also has a connection to Peachtree City, Georgia – as that is where the 2014 SAORI Conference is being held this month! Susan Forsberg writes: There is a SAORI Weaving […]
