After the curvy-back settee’s completion late last year, the sofa upholstery to replace the first I did nearly 50 years ago, got underway. This is for an old camelback sofa. The 14 yards of simple panama, dyed to compliment the settee’ upholstery, was cut down, wet-finished and roll-blocked, waiting now for the dyepot to complete the 38-yard gimp warp. That will go onto the Baby Macomber loom for speedier weaving than the inkle would manage.

Treehouse Studio is out of stock on Warp with a Trapeze and Dance with Your Loom Trapeze is now available from Becky' Väv Stuga. Go to: http://store.vavstuga.com/category/books.html to order, rather than from here.
The 'big book' Reflections from a Flaxen Past is still available here for a limited time. It includes the basic information from 'Trapeze' PLUS textile history, flax growing & processing, projects inspired by the Lithuanian research..... I'm told it is a beautiful and valuable book.
