Tomorrow I'm doing one of my very favorite things - I'm teaching a merit badge class to a group of Boy Scouts. I'm no longer Scoutmaster, so teaching this merit badge is my favorite contact with the Scouts. I get to add my enthusiasm for all things textile - while instilling a passion for it in the next generation of young men. I always wonder if any of them will go on to pursue a career in textiles.
Each time I teach the class, I add at least one new item. I already updated a few things for this class - but tonight I couldn't resist and added yet another.
This is a cute little loom. It's a peg loom by Harrisville Designs. It's basically the same as the simple loom I have the Scouts make out of a piece of cardboard. There are some great instructions for making vertical stripes and tricks for tucking in the loose ends in the back. So it was worth the price... even though mine broke before I even used it.
But it's time to call it a night as the class starts bright and early in the morning. I can hardly wait.
