Re: change email address

Lorelei Caracausa
 

I do also.  I think it may be because when the Yahoo group migrated, our old addresses were automatically added to the new Groups IO site.  So, basically we're in there twice

Looking for help or suggestions with email from Group IO.

When we changed the group from Yahoo to group IO I put in my new email address which is a Gmail account. Into the group I O account. That has been some time now. I have rechecked my account information on group IO and it shows the Gmail address. Yet I am still getting weave tech emails sent to Yahoo.

Suggestions?

When I had this problem, I think I went into my account and chose merge emails or merge accounts.

I found Bonnie Inouye's book (and workshop) most helpful to understand the possibilities of advancing twills.

Thanks Amy.  Wouldn't mind the workshop but I'll settle for the book I guess

Thanks Laura.  I've got the last two and I'll hit CW library for Zielinski.

I found a number of books useful - S. A. Zielinski's Master Weaver monographs (edited by Robert Leclerc), two volumes on twill.  Bonnie Inouye's book.  Weaver's Magazine collected articles called Twill Thrills. 

cheers,

Already signed up. This is a wonderful class and I'm so looking forward to it!  


Re: Looking for a certain kind of wool

Kati Meek
 

Congratulations Lala,  on your commission. 

You will want, indeed, a rather coarse wool like the outer coat of the Scandinavian sheep or even mohair. If I were you, I would inquire directly of Borgs Vavgarner at www.borgsvavganer.se  or Blomqvist/Nordiska at www.blomqvistgarn.se.  They can probably spin exactly what you want/need if it is not a regularly offered item of theirs.  Treadle with Joy, Kati

AVL Weaving School

I will be teaching a 2-day class on creating “Echo & Iris” style designs at the AVL Weaving School on January 23 & 24. There are still a few openings in this class, but you must sign up by end of business, December 18. This would be a wonderful Christmas gift to yourself – or for any weaver in your life.

 

Find a full description of the class and how to sign up at https://avllooms.com/collections/workshops/products/weavepoint-for-echo-and-iris

Try Briggs and Little in Canada.  You can Google them.  You can call them and describe exactly what you need.  They are very obliging. Everything will have to go through customs, though.

I wonder if anyone in the group can help me.

I am currently looking for a supplier of thin wool (in the range of 6-7 ends/cm for a balanced weave) strong enough to be used as warp. I might consider another animal hair fibre as long as it is strong. Feeling coarse would not be a problem at all.

I have been commisioned to weave a 5 metres long strip, about 50cm wide, to replace a similar strip in an old carpet that my customer bought in Istambul years ago. It looks like a tribal rug, perhaps from Central Asia. No patterns, just a set of different coloured strips of the same width stitched one to another lengthwise. The carpet is warp faced so I will probably use a 12-14 ends/cm setting or more. The carpet is very beautful with several ochres and tans plus indigo and it looks strikingly contemporary in its simplicity.

I need the thread in dark brown but that would not be a problem as I can dye myself probably with walnut to match the previous colour.

Any indication of a supplier that might carry that kind of rustic yarns would be greatly appreciated. No matter the continent… my customer is determined to do things as best as possible…and so am I of course.

Thanks in advance!
