I was overjoyed to attend the Helena Hernmarck workshop held at the Swedish American Institute.in July. A new tapestry weaver, I was intimidated to be in the class. We were weaving with a100% linen warp and loom controlled wool weft, and linen weft. I haven't woven with linen before, but I when I hae questioned weaving friends about linen the response has been less than enthusiastic. I was very careful when I wound my bobbin, See how evenly it is wound? See how it doesnt fit in my shuttle? Fail.
