When the weather gets tough, the tough get weaving.

Here on the OBX it’s dreary and rainy today. It’s a good studio day to weave. The softly falling rain is a nice background sound for concentration. The air smells clean too.

I’m working on two weaving projects today. On the left is the band for 2 casual d-ring ladies belts and on the right is a commission for wool medieval garters for a friend who gives them for poetry competition prizes.  I am happy to accept weaving commissions. On average, 2.5 yds of inkle band is about $25-$30 depending on the cost of the yarn. I can also weave up to 9 yard lengths. Just drop me a line at martelvonc@yahoo.com with length, width, colors and material. I accept PayPal.



Weaving in Spring colors.

Spring is in the air and my color needs are brightening up. So I dug through the stash and found these great colors in 100% cotton. I haven’t decided what I will make out of this band. Maybe garters, maybe a purse strap, or maybe even a dog lead. In any event it will be in my Etsy shop for you soon. If you like this and would like it before I make it into something drop me a line. martelvonc@yahoo.com. The raw length is aprox. 2.5yds  and will be listed for $20.00.
