I’m Teaching In 2 Weeks!

img_20180111_150622521.jpg

I have two classes I’m teaching at The Weavers Guild of Minnesota in 2 weeks! I couldn’t be more excited!

One class is on how to make this lovely scarf, pictured above, and the other is how to spin fiber from reclaimed factory waste. I’m so excited! Everyone knows how much I love Minnesota, and it has been so long since I’ve taught an actual class. I’m a little nervous! I guess the hardest part will be making sure I pack everything! Wish me luck!

Another Scarf Done

I don’t want you guys to think I’m slacking over here. I know I’m Eric ‘The Quilter’, but lately I’ve been weaving. Don’t think I’ve given up quilts though. I haven’t, just off on a new adventure. In fact, one of the things I want to do, is weave some fabric for quilting. I’m honing my weaving skills so I can get to that, but right now I’m playing around with simpler weaving, like scarves. Also, I’m trying to use up some scarps from the factory I work at, but that’s for a different post.

This scarf is made from some fabulous yarn, and it’s soft, and gorgeous. I just adore it! Now sure what I’ll do with it yet, but I’ll figure that out later. Follow the jump for more photos! Continue reading

The Scarf Is Lava

 

We all played that game at some point or another, where you pretend the floor is lava… Well, I captured that essence in this lovely scarf woven completely from reclaimed factory scraps. I rejected hats from work for the warp and the weft. It turned out even more lovely than I had imagined, and let me tell you what, it is so warm!!!!

I’ve Been Busy

Work has consumed my life, as it always does this time of year, but now it’s calmed down a bit. I’ve been having a blast the past couple days with my free time, and I wanted to fill you in on what’s been going on. I’ve been pickling vegetables, making hot sauce, weaving a scarf, brewing kombucha, and few other things, but I promise to fill you in on all of it. Next post, I’ll tell you all about the kombucha, and a lot more! 

Wish me luck!

Looming Up A Storm

I loomed a lovely scarf with fabric strips for both the warp and the weft. I know… I’m a rebel!

The warp was some left over quilt backing, and the warp was strips of batik fabric I had chilling in a bag waiting to be used… Well, I found a project for them!

I’ll post pictures of the finished scarf later this week! I just have to unpack it!!!

Another Scarf Woven

I’ve been a busy fellow the past week and a half. I was in Minnesota last week, and I finally finished this scarf I stared months ago. (Yes, I brought my loom on vacation.) I also wove another scarf, and I’ll take pictures of that later this week when I get around to unpacking it. This is one of the scarves I brought with me to the Textile center in Minneapolis, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be teaching a class on it next year… We’ll see!

Wish me luck!

More Scarves From More Scraps

img_20180111_150622521.jpg

I’ve been a busy little sewer! Well, at least I’m trying to be. When I started making these scarves out of my scraps I had no idea how much fun they would be! I have a green one currently in the works, as well as a pink one, but they still need to have the topper put on, and sewn more. The only trick is, you have to stitch enough to secure everything in place, but not too much to make it too stiff. It’s a little tricky finding the right amount, but once you get the hang of it, it’s so much fun.
