March-Month

It's March month, the time of year when I start to shift my mindscape toward the upcoming fire season, packing up and heading into the bush for a six month stretch, transition. Which means I take time off from producing new wovens. This year I, decidedly, took too much time off - I'm craving my loom. I've got lots of ideas in the works and will get on them in April month! I really can't wait. I'm having weaving dreams, feel my feet moving across night treadles.

In the meantime, I'm headed to Calgary to offer a talk about weaving, natural dye, Canadian textiles, sustainable textiles and of course a little mention of Custom Woolen Mills and the work we do together, at the Heritage Weavers and Spinners Guild. I'll be speaking at their monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 28th at 1900. For more details, please contact the guild.

Happy Spring!
