Cheryl F., Tyler, TexasI don't have a lot of experience with Pin Looms. I am new to any kind of weaving. I have done some yarn weaving on pot holder looms and have a triangle loom. I am excited to see what I can make with a pin loom.
We have a second winner
Melanie Viney, Merrigum, Victoria
Melanie is one of the many Pinloomweaving readers who check in from across the world. She is looking forward to getting her book and loom.
Our first book and loom winner:
Melise Gerber, Altadena, CA.You asked me to share a bit more about myself: I am 47. My paternal grandmother taught me all kinds of needlework, knitting, crocheting and needlepoint when I was 7 or 8. I have always loved the feel of hand-woven fabric, and tried learning on a rigid heddle loom, but a traumatic warping experience led to my selling my loom before I ever even used it.
About a year ago, I read about weave-it looms on Ravelry, and was able to purchase one on eBay. I love weaving little squares on this loom--I especially like seeing the way the weaving changes my expectations for the way hand-dyed yarns work up. But, so far, I haven't found many projects that I like that can be made with these little squares--and whenever I DO try to make something from them, I am REALLY unhappy with the options I have seen for joining.
So, I am really looking forward to learning from your book. Thanks for choosing me for this contest!!
