Farewell and Good Luck.


Marilyn came along to her last GTA Show and Tell this month.She is moving to Devon ,probably at the beginning of September.We shall miss her and her wonderful injections of colour to our meetings and exhibitions.
She has obviously been busy sorting out and packing up her house here but had managed a weaving course at Dartington Hall Hotel with Margo Selby.



These are just a small selection of samples she created using the LAMPAS weave structure.They were all very different .


It is a very old technique where the warp threads are made up of two thick and one thin threads .Marilyn used some fishing line for her fine thread and her own hand dyed mercerised cotton for the thick.


A few years ago she and her weaving group created a stunning calendar and they raised money for charity from the sales .This time they  are going to do individual books containing multiple pages of weaving samples.

We are sure she will soon find a textile group in Devon,our loss will be their gain.We wish her well and good luck in her next endeavours.
