LOOM TIME at RMM Fiber Lab

January 28, 2015

Upon moving back to Birmingham, about a year ago, I have  really cherished being a part of the Red Mountain Makers Space. The space is full of creative people and it has just been a pleasure being around all that genius! RMM has events all week long, you can find them on Meetup.


I am currently involved with there Fiber Lab, It is a work in progress, but its really coming along! We acquired a Hammet Loom from Jenniffer Justice, a member of The Greater Birmingham Fiber Guild. I am very grateful to everyone that is supporting the growth of this Lab!




Here is what we did last week!


Miriam Omura arrived with some really strong Warping Thread!
