Painting Warps

On a recent summer evening 12 weavers from Sandpoint and beyond gathered at Blue Flag. This was June’s monthly get-together in Sandpoint for weavers and it was a colorful event!. Typically we share snacks and beverages, show and tell about our latest weaving or other fibery pursuits and just enjoy each others company.

But this month everyone brought a warp or two or three and we painted them with dyes. Plastic-covered tables were set up, spilling out into the parking lot, and a whole lot of cotton yarn was transformed from natural white to wild colors, elegant colors, or soft and subtle colors.
