The Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador placed a nice, big wholesale order with me the other week. Their large shop in St. John's, Devon House on Duckworth Street, has been carrying my work since 2007 when I lived in Corner Brook for a couple of years. The Craft Council of NL has been incredibly supportive to me over the years, especially when I was first starting out. Every two years or so, they place a a wholesale order with me, and this year, I am really excited about the variety of handwoven pieces they would like.
Yesterday I prepared all the silk warps by measuring them out on my warping mill, tying them up with plastic and then dyeing them. When they were still wet, I stretched them all out again on my warping mill to dry. The colour palette for this production run is a mix of blues, aquas, and raspberry pinks.
