Better living through fibre

Guild shout-out

It’s been a slow Monday morning & I’m late for a knitting meet-up but just want to quickly point over here.  It’s a post on my Handweaving & Spinning Guild’s blog about member Stella Tang’s wonderful presentation on her handwoven necklaces last Friday.

Stella explained her technique to the Guild, and as you can see from the pictures,  she also brought beautiful examples of her work at various stages of completion.  She prepares a hand-held loom with galvanized pins, and warp threads.  Once the design and loom are in place, Stella then weaves with a tapestry needle and stunning threads, incorporating beads.  Joining the beads within the body of the necklace is the main complicating factor.

She has experimented with many interesting materials, and her compositions range from (relatively) simple to complex.  So interesting!

And if I don’t get a move on, I’ll be really late for this meet-up!
