Oh - what a tangled web we weave ... Sneak Peek at this Week
Case in point - Marg goes to Philly - takes a class - and comes back with this glorious explosion of colour and textiles - that she wove in the class - AND - we are now a distributor for Mirrix Looms!
Just look at these glorious weavings - with beads incorporated. Using small quantities of yarn, silk, ribbon, fibres - add some beads - wrap the whole thing on a brass cuff, add an ultrasuede back - and BINGO! (And - you don't have to pre-string the beads - that was the first thing I asked!)
The Mirrix Looms are a well-respected brand - being well-made, compact, durable and portable. We will have small looms - designed just for beaders! And we will be able to special order the larger looms too - in case you have bigger dreams - or just want to have multiple projects on the go. Mirrix has also pioneered some very interesting techniques - such as weaving onto Softflex cable - for a flexible and ultra-durable piece!
Yet another cool thing to do with beads, or another cool thing to do with your scraps of yarn - depending on your point of view!
Available on the website - as of Wed @ midnight!
