Tapestry Class, Day One

 Today was the first day of a class with Tommye Scanlin at the Appalachian Arts Craft Center.  It was really a sub-group of the Tuesday Weavers, plus Sally from the Clinch Valley Weavers.  Barbara, Shirley, Cindy and I joined Sally in learning from one of the best tapestry weavers around.  Tommye was patient and thorough, and we learned a lot on our first day.



We each had a small copper loom to work on, and first order of the day was to warp them.  That took most of the morning, but we all managed it.















 Stupid phone doesn't take very good photos, but it's what I had today.  Aren't the colors beautiful?
  We each chose two contrasting colors, though some chose a few to blend.  We wove all afternoon, and the time flew.



 This is where I left it.  I can't wait to get back to it tomorrow!
