2015 ! !

Well,  2015 already !  This year instead of varying topics throughout the year we are going to explore weave structure and colour gamps.   ‘Google Color Gamp’ and you will get many links to read.  According to Mary E. Black in ‘The New Key to Weaving’ the term ‘Gamp’ comes from Charles Dickens.  Further research comes up with a character in a Charles Dickens novel named Sarah Gamp that carried a multi coloured umbrella that became known as a Gamp.  Interesting where names come from.
In weaving, a gamp refers to a piece of cloth woven to explore the interaction of colours or weave structures or both.
