New Mexico visit

Glenna Dean had invited me to visit New Mexico after Convergence. I had a lovely time. We spend a couple of days dying wool in her studio. Some of the places we visited include the Ghost Ranch, Espinola Valley Fiber Arts Center, Village Wools in Albuquerque, and the Southwest Regional Spinners Retreat.
At the Retreat Glenna led a dying workshop.

Yarn hanging to dry after the dying process.

I also took a workshop from Ric Rao on punch needle embroidery. I must find the time to explore this technique more, it’s quite fascinating.
I taught a workshop as well, on oblique interlace weaving. When not in workshops I sat at my sprang frame.

Working on a shawl, circular warp sprang using sock yarn. The yarn was dyed by Glenna Dean.

I had a lovely time in New Mexico, must figure out how to come back again sometime.
