On Loomy Tunes, tuesdayweavers.blogspot.com, LouAnn posted about teaching straw weaving at the Foothills Fall Festival in Maryville. We tag-teamed with her, Joyce and Joyce. Marta's sister in law, Cathy, and her mother in law whose name I promptly forgot helped Marta and I teach everyone we could coerce into learning the magical art of straw weaving. Who can resist the fun of making fabric from drinking straws and yarn?
The look of concentration on this girl's face was enough to show that we have a new weaver among us.
We had a great day, in the perfect sunshine, teaching new weavers how exciting it is to make fabric. There were men and boys weaving, too, but I forgot I had a camera with me until they were gone. One man, a fourth grade teacher, learned just so he could teach his class to do it.
We all had a fine afternoon and I'm looking forward to the next time we can do it again!
