Warping the loom!

I spent last evening warping the loom :)  The last picture is one of the wools Hunter helped me card to spin for the weave.  There is something settling to a geek analyst about counting 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 while threading the warp through the loom.  We've had a very busy time the past week solidifying vendors and artists and setting up the inside of the store.  We met with our local paper yesterday about advertising and our grand opening.  We now have a potter, 2 soap makers, lotions, lotion bars, processed wool, spindles, a few textile artists, a jeweler, a photographer, a specialty card maker, and we are working with others!  We have grass fed, pasture raised beef and pork, goat milks, cheeses, and yogurts, maple syrup, honey, and jams and jelly's.  All this and plants and gardening supplies and landscaping supplies and possibly chicken houses, bat houses, and bunnie hutches!  ALL LOCALLY PRODUCED OR MANUFACTURED - WOW!  Things are moving!!!!  More tonight I hope! Be well!
