Last weekend I got a call from a young man who is a videographer for the Methow Grist, the local online magazine produced by Methownet.com, an internet service provider in Winthrop. I have woven rugs for one of the owners there, and she suggested he come by to film me weaving in my studio. He has been producing a series of videos he calls “Gristisodes – Slices of Methow Life”.
So I somewhat nervously agreed, and he came by Monday morning and filmed and interviewed me. I told him about our guild, Methow Valley Spinners & Weavers, and suggested he might want to come to the weekly meeting on Thursday and see what the other weavers were up to. So he did, and here are a few pictures from that:
We were in the middle of a demonstration of different ways to prepare fabric strips for weaving rugs, placemats, etc.

The Gristisode just went up this morning and also features the local roller derby team, and ping-pong down at the Carlton General Store.
