I'm back! We spent a week at the lake, which is about an hour north of Fredericton. No broadband there. Just dial up. And the internal modem thingy in the laptop I use is broken. But here I am, back (for the time being) and willing to let you in on a few changes.
Residency #3 is going well. Thanks to residency # 1 I have many dyed warps ready to go. I started yesterday and have woven off one full warp of three scarves. Unfortunately, due to mis-measurement, One of the scarves turned out a bit shorter than I would like. This will require a bit of rearrangement on the part of the length of the remaining scarves from my other dyed warps. The warps were all the same length.
We have changed locations too. I am now at the York-Sunbury Museum in downtown Fredericton. Traffic is much improved, although not as much as the FAA residency at the casemates. I actually enjoy talking to people, and I enjoy educating the public as to what goes into a hand-dyed, hand-woven scarf. A big part of the purpose of the residencies is to do a bit of public education, so that people don't experience sticker shock. I charge quite a bit for my products, although not as much as I would if I were in a larger urban centre, where people are more willing to pay larger amounts of handcrafted things. Fredericton is funny that way.
As for pictures....sorry. Maybe later. My kingdom for a camera!
We will be darting back and forth between home and cooler waters for the next few weeks, so I hope that I will be able to post more often.
Thanks for reading, and may a cool breeze find you. I know that I'm hoping for one!
