Alaire, I've had trouble reading labels stuck into tubes (not cones) without removing them.

I should have said I stick the masking tape on the yarn on the tube. I usually put it to cover the loose end of the yarn.

I have a p-touch label maker from Staples that I use for everything around the house. It would be a simple matter to stick the label on the inside of the cone. Should still be able to read it.

I've woven with cassette tape in the weft and a 2/60s silk warp; light-weight satin for the pattern areas, and basketweave for the ground. I really enjoyed it - and the contrast between natural silk shine and synthetic super-shine was really interesting. It packs down well - the type I used was soft and malleable - I've used VHS tape for other projects but found it too bulky, crunchy and stiff, but it would depend on what you're making.

I've ordered 100 quart sized zip lock bags and some paper tags with string. Will either come up with an abbreviation scheme for the tags or use MS Excel to capture the details.

Went with bags due to the film of dust that has accumulated on some of the older tubes I have.

Thanks everyone.

Perhaps not as good of an idea as Deanna's answer, but I use a fine-tipped Sharpie and write the content and grist on the rim of the tube, very small.

I use a piece of masking tape, write the info on the tape and stick it to the tube. Barbara

Hi Everyone 

I write what the fiber is on a 3x5 card, then put the spool of fiber and card in a zip lock bag. I don't write on the bag so I can reuse the bag.

When I buy cones of fiber lest say 4-5 pounds, I use zip lock pillow bags I put four cones in one they are nice and big and fit nice on shelving. 

When design a pattern and I am working on the designing and picking the fibers my notes and the woven sample all go into a zip lock bag. 

Myself I like the gallon size zip locks and the pillow size zip lock bags

Colored paperclips. Color can indicate fiber type, bend one end of the clip to make a sort of latch to plug it into the end of the tube. If you need to add info, you can slip a small piece of paper in the clip.

Re: Weaving with cassette tapes

Hi Everyone 

A while back I ask the list if I could weave video tape. I was told by a lot of weavers it was not a good idea so I took about 8-9 truckloads of video tapes to the dump. My friend Marty had boxes and boxes in a storage bin. That was cleaning out storage bin 1 

Marty got really sick in March, I took Marty to the E.R. and ended up in the hospital with pneumonia for seven days. had no virus. testing was done. Marty had fevers of over 103 and more so high Marty ended up with short term memory loss, and damage. The, doctors said this problem should over time fix itself. Marty can't drive, Marty can't live on his own, if Marty is not living with me to watch him 24-7 Marty has to live in an assisted living place. The doctors started to make all of the arrangements for Marty to live in such a place. I told the doctor forget that idea Marty and I are partners and I am taking Marty home. The doctor's eyes got kind of big. But the next day Marty and I walked out of the hospital. Home health care started then had to stop a week later because of the pandemic, I have a wonderful weaving friend that is a lawyer and gave me the guide lines of things that had to be done, We, got that all done just before the shutting down. I started helping Marty with his bills and what do you think I found out? 2 more storage bins. So, the end of June, Marty and I went to visit to two storage bins 2, 10x10 Marty opened the lock on the second storage bin the door then went up, I just about feel over, the first words Marty said I own all of this? My reply you're the one with the keys. The total month of July Marty and I cleaned out two storage bins and loads of video went to the dump and other things. We are now to the point of cleaning out Marty's house a bath and a half and a music room and 6 bedrooms. I know for sure of one closet full of boxes of video tapes floor to ceiling, no open boxes all closed no dust, No, room for any dust, smoke free home. 

There are lots of music cassettes as well if you might want to weave thin tape with 10/2 warp Not sure how many cassettes. yet. Marty is reading this as I type. Marty said I am not sure I want to get rid of the cassettes I said you can keep some not all. Marty said OK. I will let most go. They are not boxed yet but soon.

I wish this topic was before the end of June. We, would have had more than 2 truck loads, if any of you would like a pick- up truck or more of video tapes send me an off-list post. 

The price free 
I will not ship 
Pick up only. Set a pick up time. 
The boxes of tapes will be placed on the front porch of home.
Each box will be sprayed with Lysol spray because of the virus and pandemic for your safety
Marty and I will not visit, nor help load boxes, the boxes are not real big and easy to handle. about 16 tapes each box.
Marty and I have been compromised me heart attack last September and stents Marty with pneumonia.

The ‘ingredients’ in the tape are the polyethylene terephthalate plastic (PET) tape (there is plenty of this in everyone’s life as water bottles), so that is very low risk, and ferric cobalt alloy which again is a stable compound with the cobalt locked in.

 

In total the material appears to be very low risk to health, though not welcome in waste tips as it degrades very slowly.

HI Linda,

 

There is a young man that lived/worked in Milwaukee, WI for a while, but I think now lives in NYC.  His name is Tim Westbrook.  (he took weaving classes with Sarah Saulson while in college)  He was on Project Runway several seasons ago.  He came to my local guild and did a program and showed us a dress he had made from used cassette/video tape….it was stunning!  However, there is a reason to believe there are some chemicals on that tape that can be harmful so whomever chooses to use it should investigate before just diving in.  I remember someone doing a dress from X-Ray film at a Convergence a million years ago too.
