Drying yarn outside, dyeing till sunset, and no jacket at the dyepots… all these make for a really happy dyer (a.k.a. Joe)! Here are the color shots from this month’s Churro Club (I love the sunset one). Enjoy!

 


Look at this happy dyer! 🙂

Getting to the dye pots for this month’s Churro Club was wonderful… the sun was out and it was so warm, the birds were chirping, the stream was flowing and the sun was setting later each day. It was a glimpse of spring… and I could see it in Joe’s smile for the entire dye run! And we were able to dry yarn outside!!!

So, here are this month’s Churro Club teaser photos… wrapping up with a “happy Joe” with a box full of the treats he picked out for our wonderful members this month!

Enjoy!

When we decided to host Weaving Springwild, we had no idea what to expect. In short, it was even more amazing than we had hoped!

We decided to share the photos below, so you can get a better feeling for the entire experience.

I hope you have enjoyed this portion of this special series as much as I have enjoyed sharing it!

Enjoy!

Handwoven tapestry by Kathy Beckwith, 23″ x 21″, Churro wool, 2014

This is the first tapestry Kathy wove after Springwild, incorporating what she learned during the retreat.

I love the stripes of plain weave, breaking up the sections of tapestry.

Enjoy!
