Tapestry is FUN — especially when you have a Teacher

Finally – I warped the loom, wove in some TP to spread the warp threads, and then just admired it — without a clue as to how to proceed.  I suppose I could haul out the 3 or 4 tapestry books that I collected a few months ago.  Somehow, though reading about what to do was just not helping me VISUALIZE it!

I had heard about Rebecca Mezoff and her online classes, but I was a tad skeptical.  How was THAT going to work out???

I emailed Rebecca with my LIST of questions, and she gave me several options.  One of them worked perfectly for me.  I started the 6 month Self-Directed, All-in-One (parts 1, 2 and 3) class.

I have to say that this was the BEST decision!  The videos are so professional, informational and even, entertaining. I am making progress, and have even worked up a small design that will help me learn vertical slits and irregular hatching — I feel like such a pro.  The program Rebecca uses is called Pathwright and it is a very cool interface, and keeps track of all of your lessons.  It always lets me know where I left off (which is good for old gals like me, who can’t seem to remember ANYTHING!)

I even arranged my studio space to make it more convenient to weave on the vertical Loom, bought a LOT of Harrisville designs Highland yarn (I am also selling this yarn in 50 yard skeins, AND purchased a Mirrix Zach loom — 22″ width.

I am SO EXCITED.
