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 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.
