JST November Newsletter


This beautiful Japanese Maple is what I see when I come home from the studio every afternoon. I wait for this time of year so I can see it in all its glory.

Autumn is my favourite time of the year, right after Spring. In the Spring, spring is my favourite time of year, right after fall…go figure.

I guess I can hardly wait to get out in the garden in the Spring and then I can hardly wait for it to wind down in the Fall. I love these two polar seasons.

We have had one heck of a year in the garden and it is really nice to put it all to bed. The freezers are full, the garlic is in, winter brassicas are in fine form and now we can just sit back and eat :^) How good is that!

Update on Registration for 2017

Registration Day was a tad hectic….it was a record year….every seat was taken in 2 1/2 hours. Wait lists are nicely filling up. If you were unable to get your spot, please, please, please make sure you are on the wait list. We take people from the wait list every year….after all, life isn’t perfect, stuff happens and we get cancellations.

  1. I love your website. I recently inherited/bought a Delta Louet loom from a friend whose wife just passed away. I feel so lucky to have the loom and have woven for many years. But this is my first counter marche and the treadle tie up has been frustrating. I have lots of questions and hope you can help me. Is it necessary to use all eight harnesses on a counter march loom? On my Norwood I can just use 4 out of 8, but I think threading only four on the Louet throws the harnesses and lamms off balance.

    1. You put the blocking pin in the back 4 and just tie-up the front 4. It absolutely does not thrown the loom off balance.
