A Warping Good Time 9-11 Oct

Hello fellow fibre junkies!
I'm gearing up for another weaving weekend, well this time warping. I'd like to host those who need help warping their looms. I'm wondering at this point, how many interested folks have the weekend of 9-11 October open?
Just let me know through a comment and I'll send out more details once the date is set!

Tapestry update

I've managed to get some time to work on weaving on my tapestry.
Here is the bottom half completed:

And here is my wyvern. I was not brave enough starting out to add any of the outlining, which is why the chevrons are not outlined. As I got further into the wyvern, I became more brave about outlines and added one and then another, and then most of hte ones that were somewhat horizontal. I still need to go back and add all the outlines that I skipped while weaving. I also need to weave another couple inches of yellow across the top to finish it off. Then it will be fixing some of the color joins where there is a slit in the tapestry at the moment (I really need to talk to Jahanara about that), and hemming the piece.

I think I would choose a different kind of design for my next piece. These large chunks of solid color are boring and also meant that my edges pull in and the entire tapestry will be slightly hour glass shaped which I hope to fix by hemming the sides (which I shouldn't have to do) as well as the top and bottom.

From the Office of the ID MoAS

Greetings exhaulted artisans,

I apologize for the late nature of this notice and hope it reaches you all in time. This year at Raglan Fair we will again have a tent dedicated to the Arts and Sciences. We will not have a formally judged competition, but there will be a populace choice. I would like to ask all artisans to bring items to display. I also ask that you bring items to work on with your bretheren! The tent will be available for crafting and socialising Thursday through Sunday. Please plan to display any items and to join your fellow artisans in companionship and productivity!
Please feel free to contact me to let me know you will be participating and with any questions!
Jahanara, ID MOAS
