5 thoughts on “In the Fiber Room

  1. I stopped here to see your "good fences" for the week, but was attracted to this post instead. I used to buy raw wool, card it, spin it, dye it with natural dyes and weave huge tapestries (used some commercially-made yarns, too.) But one day about 20 years ago, I just couldn't do it anymore —so much time and work for one project. I even returned the downpayment for a commissioned piece I hadn't touched in months. I have a huge frame loom and a four-harmness room in the attic with half-finished projects —probably moth-eaten and falling apart by now.

    Seeing your lovely photos made me a bit nostalgic for the process, Sometimes I miss it —I liked to feel the wool, smell it, and weave with it, but I'm into digital art now and will probably not return to fiber arts again. But I do admire those who have the patience to stick with it.
