Spring Editions

We received the Spring editions of Handwoven and Fiber Arts magazines yesterday. I was so pleased and surprised to see and article in Fiber Arts by Janis Thompson. Janis is the owner of Dye Lots here in Eugene. We proudly carry and sell her wonderfully dyed fiber here. Recently she has added to her reportoie a line of naturally dyed fiber batt blends and yarns. I hope you come by and purchase the magazine and read about this wonderfully creative person and get a glimpse into her creative process.
This issue of Handwoven is full of diverse projects from rep weave to ply split brainding, overshot and color forecast. It is a must have issue.
Don't forget our Spinner's Tea is this Saturday from 1 - 3pm.

Have a Happy St. Patricks Day tomorrow!

Thank you Doramay/unannounced sale

There is a republication of a much loved book from Doramay Keasbey now in our store. It is called Designing with Blocks for Handweaving. Over the years Doramay had received many requests to reprint this book. After much hard work and editing on her part it is now again available to you the handweaver.
By the way, Doramay will be speaking about weaving with blocks at the next Eugene Weavers Guild meeting, which is held here at ETC on the fourth Monday of the month., 10am-12pm. She will also be giving a small workshop after the meeting for only $5 per person. If you are interested in attending, and are not a guild member, please call in advance and reserve a spot.
Also only to be advertised here in the blog, we have 10/2 unmercerized cotton for only $8/lb. You would be lucky to find any fiber so nice, so inexpensively priced. It is a limited supply, so hurry in.
