Come and try looms and spinning wheels….new Louet looms and wheels, and older looms in a great variety are warped, ready and waiting for you to sit down and weave. Weave on a jack, counterbalanced, or countermarch.

Compare weaving with a mechanical or electronic dobby.  See how easy it is to use an electronic dobby!

At the Bargain Craft Expo Whitlam Centre Liverpool

This is a new Craft show type event….first time offered.  Organisers are hoping to make it an annual event. It’s small, about 25-30 stalls, but only $5 for visitors to get in as well!  On today and tomorrow-plenty of patchwork, sewing and scrap booking things.  Each stall has been given extra space… have never had so much!at the Bargain Craft expo IMG_1081 s50

Still working of course!!  So  far, much discussion and teaching about fibre things,  felting  and spinning…. a loom is an unknown object really.workingatshow
