This and that

AS some of you might recall, last November I traveled to Cincinnati to appear in the 1400 series of Beads, Baubles and Jewels:  It was a lot of fun and I met some great folks there.  I was told it would air in May and I promptly forgot to check if it did.  This series does not air on all public television stations.  If you go to their website you can find listings for your area.  So I went there:  And to my surprise, it is airing this month.  I don't think it aired anywhere in May or June or July!  So check it out and see if it's coming to a television station near you.  Our episode is 1410 Texture and it shows me making a tapestry/bead cuff.  See it there on the cover of the DVD!

You asked for, and now we are making it.  A shedding device for our eight inch loom:

Yes, we ran out of that gorgeous gold thread.  But after weeks of waiting for a shipment from Japan, the good news is we found some more.  It will arrive in the next few days.  Get your orders in early before this stuff is all gone:

Up and coming . . . a new Mirrix Loom.  This one will be perfect for weaving table runners.  She will be 28 inches wide and will weave a piece up to 44 inches tall (weaving width will be 25 inches).  We are so excited about this new loom!  I personally cannot wait to use it!

I am thrilled that there will be a new Mirrix Loom coming!!! I own all the different sizes of Mirrix Looms and 2 of the 16 inch ones. I love ever one of them and cannot wait to get the new one. I wonder what the name of the new one will be..... This is exciting!
