My weaving supplies finally came in! A couple of weeks ago I put in an order with the Woolery for all the equipment I’d need: shuttles, bobbins, bobbin winder, reed hook, and heddle hook. I also ordered yarn for my first project – rag rugs. Now all I need is the warping board Matt is going to make me (hint hint) and rags. I’m planning on hitting the thrift stores to buy some old sheets/jeans for use as scraps.
