Weird Weaving

Members gathered to hear Our Stan’s talk on alternative weaving techniques.  Several of them involved the use of cardboard, and he confessed to having an addiction to the stuff.  (Well, it takes all sorts !)  Stan explained, and demonstrated, how to pin out the shape of a garment, warp it up, and then construct it;  how to weave a beret using card with punched holes;  making a shawl from a HUGE piece of card notched at the edges, and how to “knock up” a scarf loom using cheap timber, wing nuts and a pound or two of nails.  Lots of questions, lots of laughter, and delicious home-baked cakes made for a most enjoyable afternoon.
