I purchased a Bambu 7 kit from Cotton Clouds and using the horoscope threading draft from Bonnie I wound the warp.
Weaving in progress.
The workshop also included a kit to make a beaded necklace based on the same horoscope. I hope to have that completed soon.
At my last guild meeting one of our members brought in a very interesting item and asked if anyone knew what it was. We didn't have a clue so now I hope someone out there will know what it is.
What the heck is this?
It has an adjustable arm on the top with a platform that has small pegs. The platform has grooves. It is handmade and very well made.
There is a second adjustable arm that appears to have the ability to hold something down.
This may or may not be related.
Update: I would agree with Vanessa. It's a needlepoint stand. There are lots of examples out there in internet land that look similar. Check out this site for a review of a needlepoint stand with similar features.
As for the other thing in the photo... some one thought it might have something to do with the creation of lampshades.
