What is stick weaving?

Comment by Party Pooper on November 6, 2012 at 11:27am
I really had a fun time at the festival!

Adolpha you are very right about practicing! I am squeezing the time in to practice some of the stick weaving I learned from one of the members from CROFT. Slow progress but worth it. I will post the results once I get to the computer.

I'm sorry you lost an old friend JB Gold. Safe travel to you and thank you for help with the braided egg recipe!

I will post the recipe I used for the braided egg bread and photos if you want. Just have to dig them out. Currently getting ready for a trip to Rapid City to pick up some things including a strap for a tredle sewing machine I inherrited from a gentleman I use to help with his wife. She had allshimers.... Sorry, I don't do well with spelling. no dictionary handy either.... The gentleman was a serigat father and taught me some old skills for photography. He passed away awhile back... I miss him.

While visiting the Tucson Celtic Festival I spoke to a blacksmith (Bill) and leather crafter who was very kind. He makes his own knives and leather items such as pouches, scourges, knife sheathes, and more. His wife (Donna) is a seamstress who makes beautiful traditional wear from the Renaissance period (she was not at the fair for me to speak with) but her friend was there to show me what she has made.

Today I went to the Tucson Celtic Fesival & Scottish Highland Games and met some artisans. I was taught many things and I have names of the groups and artisans who were very friendly and gave me some wisdom.

Below is a group called CROFT (Celtic Reinactment Organization Fellowship and Trades. The are based in Phoenix, Arizona. They demonstrate traditional crafts/trades from Reniaissance period. They learn, teach and go to public fairs and gatherings to show that old artisanry is still alive! I learned a lot from them, about looms, making yarn thread, weaving, wood carving, and stick weaving! It was fantastic meeting these people! Their website is:
