This student completed all her finish work and then decided to sew her scarf in half to turn it into a skinny scarf.

Back to work and the measuring of the warp was finished, then it was wound onto the back beam. Now it is time to thread the heddle.

Beautiful weaving!

The first warp is all tied on and the waste yarn has been woven.  New weft yarn has been chosen and the real weaving will begin tomorrow.  Can’t wait to see what these campers will be up to tomorrow morning.
