Last year while attending the Kumihimo Conference I learnt how to use a takadai. This is a "high braiding stand'. I was hooked. Braiding on a marudai is one thing; the takadai is a totally different experience.
We had amazing teachers from around the world available to us. One, Leigh Morris from New Zealand, made me my very own. It arrived today, YIPPEE!
I can't wait to revisit what I learnt in Japan.
