July is a busy month for retreats.  See Upcoming Events on the side bar for dates or inquire about other dates.

There are also a lot of people visiting Salt Spring Island and some of our cottage guests also come to the studio to try out weaving in a 2-hour 'Try It' class.  Always fun to see the variety of colours and textures used in the studio.

This week is also the beginning of the SAORI International Conference in Peachtree City, Georgia. 
I wish I could be there to meet everyone and share ideas and see the people from Japan again.  Next time!

In the SHOP

Two new cotton yarn sets are available for this summer though I only have one of each one available now:

You can find these and other yarn sets and warps in my ETSY shop.


I enjoyed reading about Mihoko's process in both weaving the cloth and creating the garment in her blog about her Loose Tunic.

I recently posted a story about a Joy Coat - that is about great SAORI connections.

From Yokohama, Japan - lots of skinny scarves on their blog here.

SAORI Studio Meno in Japan - I'm not familiar with this studio, but there is also alot of inspiring pieces on their blog here.

Happy Weaving,
