February Meeting

Jean brought along her table top loom which had been set up so that we could try it. She explained how it worked and how you could get a pattern. Jean also showed us some of the work she had done as part of her textiles degree course. She had graduated this summer from Farnham College. She also showed us the fabric she had produced much of which was woven silk. She had dyed a lot of the yarn herself as well. Lots of questions were asked and we were able to have a go at the weaving as
well. She also explained that we could weave using yarns that we probably had in our stash at home and produce really nice fabrics with them as well.
