There’s a reason I don’t talk in public


I’m having an absolute blast at Convergence.  I had a class taught by Lillian Whipple this morning where I learned how to figure out the threading, tie up, and treadling when I only have the drawdown.  This is something that has been boggling my brain for a long time but now that I see how to do it, it seems so simple.

I met Helene Bress today.  The Weaving Book has been reprinted and should be available in a couple of weeks.  I preordered it.  I’ve been trying to talk Steve (her son) into letting me take one of the two copies they have now but they are supposed to go to some publishing promoters.

Tonight was Moonlight Madness.  None of the vendor booths I visited had any special deals.  I did see Marg Coe at the AVL booth, selling and autographing her new book.  She explained to me what was in the book and what it was about. She asked about what loom I had, to which I replied “I have a 12s but there’s a 16s Weavebird (LeClerc, different loom maker) over there calling my name!”  As soon as the words left my mouth, it hit me that I was still in the AVL booth.  I slapped my hand over my mouth and turned probably 5 shades of red.  And people wonder why I don’t talk much in public.
