Here Be Dragons

It didn’t occur to me until after I typed the title, but it refers to not only the dragon loom in the picture, but also to me. Our high school mascot was a dragon, so of course every student that has ever graduated from there is called, naturally, a dragon. Kind of amusing, but there […]

What Makes a Fiber Artist?

As I was walking past my loom on my way downstairs, the warp caught my eye, and I thought how beautiful the unwoven warp was, just under tension and the strands lying so perfectly side by side, everything symmetrical, and suddenly my brain said, “What makes a fiber artist?” I think the answer is subjective […]


It’s very quiet in the house since Bandit crossed the Bridge. The boys seem to be lost, Vanir more than Thor. Bandit was who he latched onto when he joined the family as a puppy, and he’s been looking for her since she’s been gone. We all have, really. The girls are really devastated, but […]

Busy Bee

It’s been a busy week. Bryony has a nasty cold and pink eye, Aneira has a stomach issue, and the PIP is complaining of the same. I’m afraid to get near any of them, because whatever they have, I don’t want it! I also had the dubious honor of someone getting hold of my debit […]

The DMC satin floss experiment has its ups and downs. The thread itself is an “up”: it’s holding up to weaving as well as its regular counterpart so far, which is what I’d hoped for. The slipperiness of it makes it only a little harder to work with than regular cotton floss. Tying on, I discovered, is […]


The experiment has begun! The warp is mostly on the loom; all that is left is to thread the tablets and tie onto the cloth beam. And I have to say, never have I warped a loom so easily. It took me forever because it’s an 8 yard warp, but the way Gilmore makes this […]

Beautiful Disaster

Two days ago, I received my new-to-me Gilmore Big Wave, which was exciting in its own right, because I’ve been coveting this loom for years, but I also discovered some DMC embroidery floss I’d never seen before. It’s got a sheen completely unlike the rest of the company’s floss, and I fell utterly in love […]
