Warped? Yes. Weft Behind? Nope. Busy? Yes

Well, isn’t this unusual, a post from me! It has been quite the year 2014. After having lots of death and negative things to deal with in 2013, I was really looking forward to a nice year in 2014. Well, I started something that has kept me VERY busy and happy at the same time. Yes, I’m still weaving, I will post photos, but this is much bigger than my weaving.

BLACK HILLS CRAFTERS NETWORK was born in January of 2014. It started out small and now has 52 shops on the website! I am pleased that it has gotten so big. The website has started me doing other things, like marketing some of the shops that are presented on the website. And I have begun selling products for my dear friend Cindy who has recently become widowed and needed help keeping her craft business going. We are doing well with her products and my mouth! I LOVE selling good product!

Another place I have been spreading my time is with Arts Rapid City another new website that features artists, crafters, events, businesses and organizations. I love going to their workshops and adding my crafters to their website.

If you are in the market for wonderful crafts please check out Black Hills Crafters Network. If you are looking for something awesome to do in Rapid City, SD go to Arts Rapid City to see what is happening.

I received a  weaving “sampler kit” for my birthday in July and I am slowly learning how to make all the great patterns included in the sample. This is great fun and I will post photos later, hopefully sooner than later, later!

Here are two pieces I completed over the summer. The red, green and blue one is a fabric to become a vest and the blue, yellow/orange one once finished became a stole that got 2nd place at the county fair in August!! Both use handspun yarn for the weft and commercial yarn for the warp. Both woven on my wonderful Macomber Baby Mac.
