What a great summer! This past spring was busy getting LaHave Weaving Studio up and running on the second floor of the Lunenburg Foundry building.  I loved the enthusiastic and talented students that I taught this summer at the Studio.  Thanks to all of the folks who popped into the Studio to check it out and say hi.  Added to the teaching was the never-ending harbourfront action outside the studio windows with yachts, kayaks, motor boats, tall ships, and sailboats coming and going.  Being beside a working waterfront operation like the Foundry is an additional treat for me and I continue to appreciate all that John Kinley at the Foundry is doing to improve the building.  We even have WiFi now which is a huge bonus.  Fall brings the slow-down in the Studio (with no insulation) and I'll be draping of all of the looms for the winter shortly. The Summer 2018 LaHave Weaving Studio schedule should be out by mid-November.
Fall is usually the time for filling shop orders for Armstrong Textiles with the biggest shipment by far going to the Art Gallery of Ontario Shop in Toronto.  I'm in their Holiday Catalgoue so we'll see what that brings.  For Nova Scotians, remember to stop in at the The Designer Craft Shop (Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council) on Marginal Road (where the cruise ships hang out)--their new large shop is really lovely. The only show I'm doing this fall is a small craft fair on the South Shore, "Christmas in Petite", at Petite Riviere Vineyards, Nov. 18 & 19. Happy Fall to you!
