Tapestry for WEBS

WEBS is going to be the latest dealer for Mirrix Looms.  We are thrilled to have our looms in their store and available through their web site.  They asked me to pick out some colors of their Berkshire Valley Yarns and weave a sample tapestry on a 22 inch loom.  I used their Linen Valley yarns 8/2 for warp. Using linen warp on the Mirrix Loom is a pleasure because the tension is so even and strong.  It's difficult to warp looms with linen when you have to tie on the threads.  A continuous warp makes warping with linen so much easier.

This is where I am at.  I have an inch or two to go before weaving the final linen hem.  And then off it goes to WEBS in North Hampton, MA to go on display.  We hope you have a chance to visit this wonderful store.  It's huge and filled with all sorts of wonderful stuff . . . and now the Mirrix Loom and warp and weft yarn to make your Mirrix sing.
