Posted by Peg in South Carolina

I just found the following tidbit on a sewing blog.  I couldn’t resist making the connection to weaving and wrecking thousands upon thousands of yards of yarn (not to mention, fabric).

To paraphrase Kenneth King (big shot teacher), if you don't wreck thousands of yards of fabric, you're not really learning to
sew. That makes me feel good and terrible, all at the same time. I mean, hello, I'm well on my way to meeting that goal :-).
And yet, really, who has that much fortitude?

That's a great find! It applies horribly well to my experience of weaving (and unweaving).

"horribly well" is a most apt description!

As I look back on my early weaving efforts I can see some of those wrecked miles of yarn. Wish I had read this then.

My goodness, but what perfect saying! I guess I'm on the right track then.
