Hmmm... I read once that the first 'fabrics' were felted or things like those big leaves in Africa weren't they?

Yes, weaving should be treated with more dignity than to be a sub-topic of crochet.

I'm also left handed, but I can actually crochet if I want-- I just don't want to.

I emailed everyone in this thread who seemed like a weaver/spinner with the same thought Anna Lou has: weaving and spinning should have its own board, and not stuck under some other board. 

Anyone else reading this can help by emailing Leah and telling her yourself:

admin@craftster.org.

And if you know anyone else who doesn't currently post here, but  you know they would if there was an official "Weavers & Spinners" board, ask them to email her too.

Somehow I must have overlook you saying "I joke cuz..."  I just saw the first part of your comment and thought you were serious in your response.  I was just replying to you "matter-of-factly."  The average person thinks that crochet is a 70's invention, but on message boards you don't know who knows what, so that's why I responded like I did.  I see the joke now that you pointed it out to me, i.e. "rust colored acrylic yarn."

I also posted a thread on the spinning board:

WE GOT THE BOARD!!!  Check it out.  It's a top level one too, and they've placed spinning right above it.  SUPER COOL!

I work at a kid's colonial history camp. We have about 8 small looms and two larger floor looms. At the end of the summer, we let the kids make simple, small projects out of their weaving.

I've had some of them make little purses, wallets, bags, rugs, bean bags, pillows, blankets, bookmarks and scarfs. For the more adventurous, my kiddies have asked for vests and I've even had leg warmers requested.

If anyone can think of any other projects, it would be much appreciated. Not many nine year olds want a tea cozy or a coaster.

Camp's in session for the summer so if I ever get this stupid camera to work....

and, YAYA for getting a board guys!

thanks  Cheesy

I love my babies! Creative yes, practical no.
