Weaving and learning with Jane Stafford

Last week Shelley and I spent a few days on Salt Spring Island with Jane Stafford who was teaching three workshops on weaving.  It was FANTASTIC in every way!  Jane is an energetic, upbeat, fabulous teacher with a great sense of humour (and colour) who has been weaving for 32 years.

Showing us an easy way to tie on.

Shelley and I stayed at Green Acres Lakeside Cottages on St. Mary's Lake.  Our cabin was sweet and the view was gorgeous.  As well, we had a whole lot of fun together!

Me trying to take a photo of the two of us before we left.

Some samples of the weavings at Jane's studio.

We both came home with a wider, longer, deeper, passion for weaving.
A wonderful night to you all.
