I knew I was going to run out of my lilac weft so I thought I’d try clasped weft to introduce another color. I’ve never done it while weaving a pattern (only in plainweave) but I’m pretty happy with the results. Next time I’d make the angle a bit more steep #lsgcrafts #weaving #handwoven #weaversofinstagram #warp #weft #claspedweft #fiber #yarn #cotton #color #texture #pattern #textile #textiledesign #8shaft #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #fiberart at Bucks County, Pennsylvania

Hello everyone! I’m still here!!! Not much time for weaving these days but I fit it in where I can. Since my weaving room has no heat, it’s hard to weave in the winter but I just bought an 8 shaft 22” Harrisville loom so now I can weave in the living room. Yay!!! This weekends project was dyeing. I took a dyeing class back in October and this is my 1st solo attempt. This is all 6/2 unmercerized cotton. I dyed a warp in purples & another in blues/greens and each warp has a coordinating skein to use for weft. #lsgcrafts #fiber #yarn #handdyed #handdyedyarn #weaving #warp #weft #color at Buckingham, Pennsylvania

Just in case anyone was wondering, here are just a few of the steps that go into masking custom handwoven scarves. 1st is the yarn, freshly wound into cakes from skeins. Next are two images of the winding of the yarn into a warp. Next is a picture of the warp chained before going onto the loom. After that comes the sleying process where the yarn is fed through the comb like structure, called a reed. Lastly, there is a picture of threading the yarn through the heddles to set the pattern of the finished scarf. These scarves will be woven in a sumptuous Merino Wool. #lsgcrafts #weaving #handwoven #weaversofinstagram #warp #fiber #yarn #merino #wool #color #pattern #texture #textile #textiledesign #handwoventextile #custom #makersgonnamake #handmade #process #loom #floorloom #iloveweaving #sheldridgeyarn at Buckingham, Pennsylvania

This is my beautiful Mother. She left us 4 years ago today. I had just barely begun weaving but she told me that it was something I HAD to do. She has been a constant inspiration on this journey and I thank you, Mom, from the bottom of my heart for believing in me. I miss you, not only today, but everyday. I loved you more than words can say 💔 #inspiration #love #loss #fuckcancer

I really thought that this 10/2 cotton warp that I dyed would be a total disaster but I LOVE the way it’s weaving up! I’m weaving it in plainweave and using a teal 10/2 cotton for the weft. Since I’m weaving at night, again, you can’t really see the amazing depth of color, but I promise, it’s there! Can’t wait to cut this off the loom!!!! #lsgcrafts #weaving #handwoven #weaversofinstagram #loom #floorloom #dorsetloom #warp #handdyedwarp #weft #fiber #yarn #cotton #color #plainweave #dyersofinstagram #handdyedyarn #blue #green #textiledesign #textiles #plainweave #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #handmade at Buckingham, Pennsylvania

Hello Fall! Here is one of the gorgeous 8/2 tencel warps that Kathrin Weber dyed for me. With all the beautiful colors of the autumn leaves 🍁 I decided to go with a leaflike pattern. I tried several different wefts but finally decided to go with a mustard yellow cottolin. I’m weaving upside down (to minimize my tie up) but, so far, I’m happy with the result 😁 #lsgcrafts #weaving #handwoveon #weaversofinstagram #fiber #yarn #tencel #cottolin #warp #weft #textile #textiledesign #color #pattern #handwoventextiles #handdyed #fall #autumn #handwovenscarf #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #fallleaves #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles at Bucks County, Pennsylvania

It’s finally all off the loom!!!! I had enough warp left to make a twill scarf with cream weft. The video is the 2nd half of the warp coming off the cloth beam and the picture is of my daughter wrapped in yards and yards of tartan. She was so thrilled about it 😉Next up is some wet finishing and then I need to test dye some samples before I overdye the rest. I’m trying to give it a weathered look so I’m going to test dye with blue & black 1st to see what happens #lsgcrafts #weaver #weaving #weaversofinstagram #handwoven #offtheloom #warp #weft #twill #tartan #fiber #yarn #wool #textile #textiledesign #color #pattern #plaid #makersgonnamake #buckscounty at Bucks County, Pennsylvania

So about a month ago, I wound this 14 yard warp and got it on the loom. Since then, I’ve been up to my eyeballs in tartan. Ive only been able to weave after work at night ( that’s why the lighting in these pictures is terrible 😩) It hasn’t taken me this long to weave a warp in years! This is Brown Sheep Fingering Wool sett at 20 epi. I’m finally nearing the end and couldn’t be more excited to get all this tartan finished! After it all comes off the loom I’m going to overdye it to get the exact color I want #lsgcrafts #weaving #weaver #handwoven #loom #floorloom #warp #weft #fiber #yarn #wool #tartan #plaid #twill #color #texture pattern #textiles #textiledesign #brown #tan #babyblue #weaversofinstagram #dyersofinstagram #headedforthedyepot #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #handmade #howitsmade #handmadeinbuckscounty #buckscountyartist at Bucks County, Pennsylvania

So I didn’t share the 1st warp I dyed yesterday because I thought it would be a total disaster, but after rinsing it, I am pleasantly surprised. These pictures show the undyed 10.5 yd 6/2 cotton warp; what it looked like before I rolled it up & threw it in a bag because I thought it was terrible and what it looks like after rinsing. Now I can’t wait to weave with it! The last picture also shows the gorgeous autumnal warps in 8/2 Tencel dyed by Kathrin. She is just a dyeing phenom!!!! #lsgcrafts #weaver #weaving #handwoven #weaversofinstagram #fiber #yarn #warp #cotton #color #texture #tencel #dyeing #handdyed #dyersofinstagram #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles #makersgonnamake #buckscounty #handmade #handmadeinbuckscounty at Bucks County, Pennsylvania

So today was our Kathrin Weber Dyeing workshop. Having relatively zero dyeing experience, this one has my head spinning. I dyed a few warps, the only one of mine that I shared here is the blue & green one. The 1st 3 pictures are of Kathrin dyeing two “sister” warps for me in several different colors that were all based in a rust brown. The last two are of her dyeing a gorgeous rainbow warp. Tomorrow I’ll rinse the warps and re-chain them. I can not emphasize enough what an incredible wealth of knowledge that Kathrin has to offer. She is just the best. Thank you Kathrin!!!!! #lsgcrafts #weaver #weaving #handwoven #fiber #yarn #cotton #tencel #dyeing #handdyed #handdyedyarn #color #colortheory #fiberdesign #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles #dyersofinstagram

More pictures from the workshop. 1st is a Ribb weave, 2nd 2 are of Rep weave with different wefts, 4th is Turned Taquete and the last one is the sample off the loom with a small piece of doublewidth fabric in front. I did the doublewidth so you can see both layers of the warp side by side. I used 3 different colored warp chains and tied them into a dummy warp in two layers (even shafts then odd shafts) with the design being improvised at the loom. #lsgcrafts #weaver #weaving #weaversofinstagram #handwoven #loom #floorloom #fiber #cotton #color #texture #pattern #textile #textiledesign #handwoventextiles #weavestructure #warp #weft #weavingworkshop #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles #makersgonnamake

Hello! I’m back!!! I know it’s been a while but I’ve got this new full time job thing that has been seriously cutting into my weaving time! Anyway, here are some pictures of my current workshop with Kathrin Weber of Blazing Shuttles. I was a bit behind everyone else since I had to miss the beginning of the workshop yesterday but, wouldn’t you know it, I just happened to be the 1st one who was up and weaving by this afternoon 😉Kathrin’s warps are as gorgeous in person as you’d hope them to be and she has a zillion tricks up her sleeve. Such a fabulous teacher!!! Tomorrow we will finish the weaving workshop and Saturday we move to dyeing. I can’t wait to see the end results of both. I hope you all have been well and I look forward to sharing with you all again soon!!! #lsgcrafts #weaving #weaver #weaversofinstagram #handwoven #weaversofinstagram #loom #floorloom #ontheloom #fiber #warp #weft #cotton #plainweave #handdyed #texture #pattern #color #weavingworkshop #textile #textiledesign #designingattheloom #kathrinweber #blazingshuttles #makersgonnamake #imback
