Friday at the studio…

Today was a fun and productive day at the studio…

Last week Ayla and Seneca both made and set up warps and so today was all about weaving…

Ayla was inspired by the loose weaving and so decided to make a scarf for her mom…

Isn’t it lovely??

Seneca is working on some yardage to make perhaps a shawl or top – she hasn’t decided yet…

Can’t wait to see how it turns out … and what she makes!

Another young girl at the studio was weaving a wall hanging for her Nana – and she finished it today…

…it is just her second weaving that she has done. I think her Nana will love it!

After Ayla was finished her scarf – which wove up so quickly – she decided to do a “Crazy Weaving” with what was left of her warp…

A child’s loom for Saori Weaving

Over at Saori No Mori in Japan they have been working on developing a child-sized floor loom.

It is sooooo adorable – a version of the SX-60 folding loom in miniature. I have a prototype of the loom to try out and took it to the Victoria Fibre Festival this past weekend.

Child\'s Saori Loom

The children loved it and they were lined up to try it out. Everything is within their own reach.

It will be great for schools and other places that teach children to weave as it is a full working floor loom in a small size. It is also height adjustable and so it will work for children for many years. In these photos you see it at it’s smallest size.

I’ll let you know when it is available for sale!

Happy Weaving,

Terri
