Oh thank you! I worked a bit last night on setting up a dyeing/fleece cleaning station in my laundry room in the basement. I'll have pictures when I finish it...not too exciting since its in a basement but it has a utility sink Smiley

ohh, a fleece washing station...sounds like a great idea!


Well, this thread got my butt in gear to clean up my crafting space!  So here are some pictures to share!



A big table, with my carder and picker ( both pat green  Grin), which vies for space with my sewing machine and stuff.  It always a bit of a shuffle, whether I am doing fiber crafts or fabric craft. 

And here's the built ins in the closet:


crammed, and not that organized..but, oh well.

There are a lot on Craftster Community > HOME SWEET HOME > Interior Decorating: Completed Projects  Since this thread isn't really specific to Fiber Arts, maybe this thread would be best placed on the Interior board?

Here's minnnne! Smiley  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155821.0

FIBER ARTS ARE TAKING OVER MY HOUSE AND I LOVE IT!

As I gazed at your space, I see a louet carder and some very beautiful batts.

I also have a louet carder, but it drives my nutty. I know that some fiber is supposed to stick to the first drum, but I am getting a massive amount on it. Which seem to take forever to card off to the second drum. Plus the bats I make aren't very thick and full on lumps.
Do you have any tips for a fellow owner? Or maybe a video of it's use?

No video but I do have some advice. Most of my batts are for making art yarns and usually have bits and pieces of this and that in them. I like to skip the infeed drum and place the fibers where I want them directly on the 2nd (big) drum. I also use a wallpaper brush to compress the fibers on the drum so I can fit more on it. Works great! HTH, feel free to PM me if you have any more questions!!!

Thank you for you help. Any info I can get is great.
It's a good thing I have to go to the hardware store already, now I'll be adding a brush to the list.
The next time I feel like chucking that carder out the window, I'll PM you first!! With batts as pretty as those, you know what your doing and you do it well!!

Thank you so much!!

Aww thanks! It should be fun not stressful, relax and let the fibers talk to you. Smiley

I think mine were saying "Leave me alone, I'm not going to do what you want."

But with your tips, I'm going to get it to work if it kills me. Especially after seeing what you can do with that carder.

I'm totally green with envy!!!
