    Are you going to be selling kits or full houses Susie?

    Thanks! It was an awesome class Deborah! But it was quite technical and required good manual dexterity.. which isn’t exactly my strong point. Plus I started weaving in the same direction as the rest of the class but being left handed it was very awkward for me.. I thought I was just bad at it, until we realised why I was struggling.. but by then I was too far in and had to continue in right handed weave.  So I turned the bottle upside down and did everything backwards.... pretty happy it turned out as well as it did, considering

    Thanks Keith. No not really, if your using thread stakes you are always going to need a form or your item won’t hold its shape. If you use wire stakes then you don’t need a form. 
  6. Yes and it can cut fabric.  @SharebI’ve used my maker to cut plywood veneer (very very thin from the aeroplane modelers section at the hobby shop). It did cut it, but not all the way through. I just used my scalpel to finish the cuts but probably if I did another pass it would have cut it.

    Thanks Nellie! It was a lot of fun and challenging but also a lot of fun to meet other miniaturists.

    Thanks Shannon. I see your up early too  ... yes it was quite difficult, when we started on the base I was thinking “what was I thinking doing this workshop!” Haha...  But I persevered and I’m pretty proud of how it turned out. I’m already scheming some mini baskets and planning how I can use what I’ve learnt

    I did a miniature weaving class at the AMEA (Australian Miniature Enthusiasts association) over the long weekend. It was taught by the very talented Lidi Stroud. We weaved around a bottle using traditional weaving techniques. Not a wire in sight... all cord stakes in this one. All finished! Phew, that was quite a challenge.
