Please note that these classes are intended for intermediate weavers who are confident in independently dressing a loom and following a weaving draft. We recommend that you take the Beginning Harness Weaving class before enrolling in the intermediate classes.
MY WOVEN SWEATER
Have you ever thought about weaving a sweater? Leslie is a weaver, sewer, and knitter and has combined all these aspects into stunning sweaters. You will need to be a confident weaver with a floor loom that has a 26” minimum weaving width. All of the weaving will done independently at home and good time management on getting yardage woven will be critical. You will also need to know basic sewing machine skills and know how to knit or crochet to finish borders on your sweater. This class will meet on October 9 for a virtual online class where you will discuss your project details and figure out how to get your prototype muslin sized. Your second class on Oct. 18 will meet in-person here at the Yarn Barn. You will figure how much woven yardage is required, decide which yarns/colors to use, and choose a pattern structure. During the interim weeks you will weave enough fabric based on your calculations and then meet in-person on Nov. 20-21 to cut fabric, sew, and assemble your sweater. You will need to purchase the digital download sewing pattern from Wardrobe by Me ($14). You will need to bring your own sewing maching. By Leslie Arnold.

A color-and-weave sampler is a great way to learn how to weave using 2-shuttles. You will review good warp winding techniques and dress your own loom. Dressing a loom does not have to be difficult and we have good tips to make it easy and efficient. Your sampler will be woven in alternating colors in a basic twill and point twill using 15 different treadling patterns. You will need to purchase 3/2 Perle Cotton yarn in two highly contrasting colors and choose either black or white for the borders. Finished sampler is 11.5” wide x 57” long and includes 45 different patterns! This is a good review class. By Susan Bateman.
