  2. I do not know how long it will take before they get to us, but I will keep you posted.
  3. Once the transfer has been done, you should each receive an automated email letting you know that you have been added to WeaveTech at groups.io.
  4. At that point, if you are going to post, please do so at the new groups.io location.
  5. When the transfer is complete, I will see what, if anything, was not transferred, and whether I can move it myself.
  6. Also, when the transfer is complete, I will set all new posts to Yahoogroups to be moderated so that I can gently remind you to move the conversation to groups.io.

Re: Rigid Heddle question

Syne Mitchell
 

Hiya, I don't think of it in those terms as when you put the heddle in the down position it's like a sinking shed, and when you put it in the up position, it's like a rising shed (sort of -- I'm typing this pre-coffee). For converting patterns I find it more useful to think in terms of peg plans. 

If you have one heddle, you can do 2-shaft patterns without pickup.
Two heddles, 3-shaft patterns
Three heddles, 4-shaft patterns -- but this is pretty darn fiddly.

I'm going to go have coffee now... :)

Must be too early 😉 but I cannot remember if my rigid heddle loom is considered a Sinking or Rising Shed when converting drafts from 4-shafts/harness patterns.

Hi Everyone -
It's been a while since I've posted or received any post - wondering if the group is still active.
I'm headed to Italy next spring and looking for weaving venues, exhibits anything regarding yarns.
Any ideas to share will be greatly appreciated.
Best,
Chrystal

I went on a tour with a woman who lives in Tuscany though she's American by birth. She has wonderful textile folks to visit and learn from both in her area of Tuscany and in Sardinia (I have not yet gone with her to the latter). Check her out:  https://www.sapori-e-saperi.com

She also does day tours.

Hi Crystal

If you find yourself in Turin (a lovely city) - in the historic centre is a family run wool shop selling a range of soft superwash wool on cone, fine mohair in balls and hanks, and many other yarns, at very reasonable cost.

Albozzifilatialma is the name and they have a website which is mostly in Italian.

Cheers

Ann

Tessitura Bevilaqua in Venice is one of the last houses weaving silk velvet.  Their website has lots of information.

Re: MOMA - Taking Thread for a Walk

Sally O
 

Thank you for bringing this exhibition to my attention. I hope to check it out next weekend.

From the MoMA press release:

Taking a Thread for a Walk, located in The Philip Johnson Galleries on the Museum’s third floor, looks at how successive generations developed new material and constructive languages from the 1890s through the 1970s, highlighting the flexibility of textiles, a medium that continues to defy easy categorization. The installation “takes a thread for a walk” among ancient textile traditions, early 20th-century design reform movements, adventurous combinations of natural and new synthetic fibers in industrial production, through to the emergence of a more sculptural approach to textile art in the 1960s and ’70s. Textiles and the adjacent practices of architecture, painting, drawing, and sculpture have long had a close affinity, especially in the 20th century, when there was a concerted move to emphasize the underlying unity of all art forms and to connect modern art with industry and daily life. Woven artifacts appeared at the forefront of ongoing debates around abstraction, the total work of art, and the fusion of art with technology, challenging the widespread marginalization of textiles as “women’s work.”

Many of the pioneers in this narrative have been women, chief among them Anni Albers, Gunta Stölzl, Florence Knoll, and Sheila Hicks. Also featured will be recent acquisitions by Monika Correa (India), Aurèlia Muñoz (Catalonia), and the French-Swiss architect Le Corbusier, making clear the medium’s global relevance.

It doesn't say a whole lot about the exhibit but they're having some talks that look interesting.

I quit my Fakebook account over a year ago when I read an article saying that Zuckerberg was in negotiations with Wells Fargo and Chase Bank to link checking and savings accounts to FB accounts. It is another way big tech is trying to control our actions and our speech.
