i have a table loom too.  weaving is actually what i went to school for.  with mine i have made and sold scarves and small bags and cozies.  anything you can make with small pieces of fabric you can make.  you can always sew your pieces together!  it's endless really.

Where did you go to school for weaving?

you can double weave too!! its limiting in that you can only do a plain weave but if you want a bigger piece of fabric without seams it works (and its fascinating to see it go together!!)

also, i think its still funny that the weavers are crammed in here with the crocheters. (are we not cool enough to have our own space??? hasnt weaving been around much longer than crochet?)

IMO: Weavers should have a seperate area. It's not as though weaving and crochet are related by more than the fact that they both use yarn.

P.S.  Weaving have been found in Ancient Egypt...that's a long time!

true. the oldest dated fabric in existance is actually woven......
ah, history of fibers......

(i dont think crochet came along until the 70s and the invention of rust colored acrylic yarn!)

p.s. i joke cuz i'm left handed and cant crochet.....

Actually, crochet has been around a lot longer than that...very late 1700's, with the earliest known written pattern dating to 1824 in a Dutch mag.  Pretty cool, eh? We're a lot more established than people have given us credit for. Smiley

Well, spinning did eventually get its own board.  It hadn't been listed anywhere before that.  So, who do we hint to?
