Backstrap Workshop Day 1

Some quick pictures from today's workshop in West Sacramento Calif., hosted by Sacramento Weavers and Spinners Guild. Laverne Waddington shows samples of weaving and holds a sample of "coccoon" shuttle made by winding yarn around a small hank of yarn.

 Weaving stations are setup around a table near a door with lots of light coming in. Laverne is sitting to demonstrate.

Laverne shows basic band weaving.
