Today I had a visit from some lovely ladies from the Weavers’ guild WA, most of whom only tapestry weave. They were on a weaving expedition to view the tapestries on exhibit at New Norcia. (I do intend to visit this week)
I showed off Joanne (my Weavebird loom) and 3 took on the challenge to test drive her! Connie was up first (no photo of Connie at the loom as I was too late with my camera) I had to explain that production weaving doesn’t need the whacking that tapestry does. Connie whacked the beater so hard the ppc (picks per cm) went from about a 6ppc to a 2ppc!!! Good on ya, Connie!
