Taking a Break
Yesterday I took a break from packing for this week’s Fiber Forum at Arrowmont (with JCCFS upcoming classes in the back of my mind). I called this class, “Hot Wire Noah’s Arc” because we’ll be combining the latest e-textile revolution – well only one simple circuit – with the ancient art of hand rolled felt. Our neighbor across the road is restoring a pre civil war house. His ambition is to weave overshot coverlets so he collects many fiber related antiques. His basket collection could grace any museum. It is a step back in time to go into his house. He took this picture of me – on his cell phone no less – helping out with the threading. Old and new seems to be the order of the day.
