INTERMEDIATE HARNESS WEAVING CLASSES:
NOTE: The weaving classes listed below are designed for those who have threaded a 4-harness loom, can follow a draft and weave independently. If you have not woven in a few years, we recommend that you take a Beginning Weave class first.
MANAGE WHAT YOU MEASURE . . . ON A WARPING BOARD
Is the warping board getting the better of you? Choose 2 projects in advance (no wider than 20") that you want to weave at home. Bring the materials along with your pattern or let us help you select the right materials for your projects. By measuring two separate warps, your understanding of the warping board will help you work comfortably by yourself at home. By Susan Bateman.
W35 Oct. 6 (Sat.) 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 1 day $45.00 Sign up now!
Choosing the right colors for a project can be a challenge even for the most skilled fiber artists. In this class, Bea will discuss aspects of color theory to help you sharpen your color sense and plan your projects with confidence! By Bea Bonanno.
P12 Oct. 24 (Weds.) 6-9 p.m., 1 day $30.00 Sign up now!
TWO SHUTTLE MUG RUGS
Coasters or mug rugs are always handy to have and great for gifting! Make four different coaters using four different threading patterns. All patterns will use 2 shuttles and 2 different colors of cotton. Looms will be warped ready to go-- you just need to weave. You'll learn how to weave with 2 shuttles as you follow different threading patterns. Patterns used will be overshot, crackle, summer & winter, and shadow weave. Includes materials selected by Yarn Barn. By Susan Bateman.
W37 Nov. 24-25 (Sat.-Sun.) 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2 days $90.00 Sign up now!
THREE TOWEL TIE-UPS--8 HARNESS ONLY
Measure the warp, thread the loom, and weave three towels. Using an 8-harness Huck Lace threading, you will change the tie-up between towels to end up with three differently patterned towels. Choose 1 color of 8/2 cotton, 16/2 linen, or 8/2 or 22/2 cottolin for your project. This can be purchased on the first day of class. This is a great way to review warping and threading your loom, plus it shows you how the tie-up can alter the design. You need a 15" or wider 8-harness loom, 10-dent reed, and approximately 1600 yards of yarn. We will have a limited number of 8-harness looms available to rent or bring your own. By Susan Bateman.

DOUBLE WEAVE BLANKET
Our popular blanket class is now 3 days long so that you can learn the entire process for weaving a double width project. You learn how to measure your warp, thread it, and weave a blanket approximately 48 x 72. You need to select your yarn at least a week in advance to make sure we have enough stock available in time for class. Since this is a slow-to-weave project, you can bring your own loom (26 or wider 4-or-more harnesses with 8-dent reed) to use and take it home if you do not finish weaving. If renting a loom, come back during the immediately following week to finish weaving your blanket. By Susan Bateman and MaryMargaret Eisfelder.
