What does one do when finding, the night before a weaving demo for many groups of school children, that a pesky mouse has dined on the linen warp of the historic barn loom?
Improvised warping board, cotton and flax thread, voila! A new warp ready to wind on the loom and be threaded through the heddles and reed and then tied on.
Before 9 tomorrow morning. In a cabin with no lights as dusk is falling. Where would we be without challenges, I ask you.
April and Freckles are here baaaaing in sympathy. One appreciates the kindness of old friends at a time like this. Now ready for a great time tomorrow as we kick off the 2017 Heritage Artisan Days at New Harmony. Come join us!
