A small "w"

I was spending some time with a friend and(weaving teacher) the other day and we were talking about folks knowing about weaving and then folks really being weavers. During this conversation she said something that has really stuck with me. She said those who are true weavers, those who have mastered the skills needed to produce beautiful cloth from start to finish, those are Weavers with a big "W". But folks who are just learning, who are still being instructed, (like me), we are weavers with a small "w". 

Now I don't mind at all having a small "w" because it says to me that I still have plenty to learn. It says my brain has more to absorb. That I need to spend more time with like minded folks to glean what I can from them. Also that there is plenty more reading for me to do on the subject. So it is not a problem for me to have a small "w".

But there are those out there like my friend Jane and a new acquaintance, Julia that are definitely Weavers with a big "W" and I am glad to know them both. And I hope there will be many more brain picking sessions in the future. Who knows maybe some day someone might be picking my brain. So I got a lot to learn so I can pay it up someday! 

Well I was out and about at sundown the other evening and came upon a weaver with a big "W" and I just had to share it with you. Can you just imagine how hard she worked on this? She definitely has a big "W"!  

But this guy will have to admit he still has a small "w"! But hang in there little guy and keep on learning, I know you can do it.

That's the way it is with all of us. We start out learning and taking small steps but if we never give up and we keep on moving forward toward the prize we can achieve the big "W". 

I hope you enjoyed stopping in today. Leave me a comment below and let me know what big letter you've got or maybe are working toward.


  1. A great post, and a good reminder that all big "W's" were once small "w's" no matter what their craft may be.

  2. Thats right! And if we never give up its ok, no matter what size our "w" is. Thanks for stopping in.


I try my best to read every comment. And I love hearing from you all.
