Ikat math and a show

I’m pretty excited that the math for the ikat seems to be working out pretty well. It’s off by a small amount, maybe 1/4 inch so far, but doable. Won’t know for sure until I’m finished.

ZigZagIkatI’m also going to try and keep records concerning warp size. For instance, on this piece, the warp width is 6.25% less than the measured ikat on the board. It would be interesting to know how percentages vary with width—or not. At least is would be a starting place for tying on a warp.

Guild Show

The Fort Worth Weavers Guild hung their biennial show on September 1, 2009. A sale will be held on September 12, beginning at noon. That evening there will be a reception during Gallery Night. We also have a raffle. Tickets will be available during the sale from 12-9 or you can contact me: sherri@sherriwoodardcoffey.com. A picture of the raffle item is below. 34x66.5

The pieces are hung from weaving tools. In addition, an “inspiration” board is included beside each piece. The boards explain the inspiration and/or the process for the piece.

Here is a slide show of some of the pieces in the show.

Today

On tap for today: more weaving, finishing the spiral piece I took off the loom a couple of weeks ago. I need to arrange to have a photograph made before the sale next weekend.
