NOTE: The weaving class listed below is designed for those who have threaded a 4-harness loom, can follow a draft and weave independently.



312 color combinations!  You will weave a wall hanging or table runner that does double duty as a reference for selecting colors for other projects.  Primaries, secondaries, light and dark values, neutrals, and more—the gamp includes a full range of colors.  Looms will be threaded in rosepath so you can see how the colors interact in a pattern weave.  We’ll do the threading and have 32 weft colors wound on bobbins so all you do is weave!  Gamp measures 18” x 48”.  Materials included in the class fee.  By Susan Bateman.

Quebecoise from Brassard is a sturdy 3-ply wool yarn that weaves up into great rugs.  We dress the looms for you in 8/4 carpet warp and you choose 4 colors of rug wool to make a 20” x 36” rug.  The stylish motif in the rug lets you play with the great colors available.  Learn tips on how to beat firmly, change colors, and achieve tidy edges.  You will need to pre-purchase 1 tube of 8/4 carpet warp to be left at the store so we can dress your loom.  You will need to purchase your weft yarn and 2 long flat shuttles or rug shuttles before class starts.  By Bea Bonanno.

Explore four different weaves AND make a fun set of four mug rugs!  You’ll move from loom to loom, tackling canvas weave, honeysuckle, waffle weave, and an ascending/descending twill.  Three are woven on 4 harnesses and one uses 8 harnesses.  In one day, you’ll sample them all and leave with a beautiful set of four coordinated coasters.  The looms will be pre-warped, so you will spend the class time weaving and practicing your twining and hemstitching skills.  Threading and warp yarn is included in the class fee;  you will need to bring a tube of Cotton 8/4 to go with color 100 Natural.
