back from London

I'm back from a few days London.
Eurostar is really great way to get to London. But getting to Brussels from Holland is so difficult these days. I had lots of problems both going and coming back. Not sure if I'm up to making this kind of journey again. Wish I could get to Brussels a different way and not use Dutch Railways.

I went to see the Hollywood Costume exhibition at the V&A. Lots to see but it was very crowded so it was very difficult to see it all.

I really went to London for 2 Complex Weavers Study Days with Jette Vandermeiden. What a great 2 days these have been. It was very International, attendees from England, Scotland, France, Belgium and me from Holland. Lovely to meet up with old friends and meet new. My head is still spinning from all I've learned. First day was about All Tied Up. This was about what you can weave on a straight threading by changing the tie up, wonderful ideas. The second day was about Lampas. This was completely new to me and by the end of the 2nd day I had reached my limit of taking in any more information. I can highly recommend a workshop by Jette. What a wonderful teacher. I'm hoping to organise something with her in Holland for next year.
I now have to finish the warp on my loom so that I can start to play.


  1. It was nice to meet you again!
    It was certainly a great experience , and Jette is such an enthousiastic teacher.

    So sorry to hear that your traveling was so difficult.

  2. Glad you enjoyed your trip Margreet just sorry I couldn't be there too x

  3. Annie, lovely to see you there. Looking forward to seeing you later in the year in Belgium.

    Julie, we'll meet up again another time!

  4. Klinkt helemaal geweldig, je worshop, niet de trein. Ik ben benieuwd naar wat je eventueel gaat organiseren maar ik neem aan dat ik dat hier wel zal lezen.

  5. Marion, het was de reis helemaal waard! En wat de workshops betreft, daar hoor je meer van!
