What Looms Ahead for me in Fabric Arts?

My plans to learn a lot about weaving this summer changed when I realized that I can make custom weaving tools myself for pennies on the dollar compared to what weaving shops charge and that I like working with wood even more than I like weaving, although it is close to a tie.

So I have been making a lot of small tools out of wood such as threaders, needles, wands, shuttles, and even a few small looms of different shapes and sizes.  But to make tools, I needed to buy tools, so that was a learning curve, too.   Yes, summer is almost over, it is true that I have learned a lot, but not so much about using my tools as about making them.


What do you think?

          • I don’t always find a Kindle First book I like either and I skip it some months. But I do read fiction to escape when I’m tired of the real world. I have quite a collection of nonfiction filling my overflowing bookcases when I want to read that, and many of my Kindle selections are also nonfiction. Sometimes I even buy one. I’ve also discovered good ebooks books I can borrow through the library or through my Prime membership, but I don’t find too many I want to read in the Prime selection. I’m actually trying to decide if I can afford a luscious looking field guide I saw in the gift shop at the botanical gardens. I just may scrape my nickels together when we go back and buy it. I’ll check first to see if it has that beautiful but dangerous flower we’ve been discussing.
