The weaving classes listed below are designed for those who can thread a 4- or more harness loom, can follow a draft, and weave independently.
START TO FINISH: WARPING BOARD TO TABLE RUNNER
Do you know how to thread your loom but lack the confidence to do it on your own? We will coach you through the process as you warp and weave a simple table runner using Bamboo Pop. You will review winding the warp, tensioning with lease sticks, sleying the reed, and threading the heddles. Then you will weave with Bamboo Bloom, learning how to maintain good tension and get tidy edges. You will leave a more self-sufficient weaver. By Susan Bateman.

WEAVE A WELCOME RUG
Quebecoise comes to us from our friends at Brassard and is a sturdy 3-ply wool yarn that weaves up into great rugs. We dress the loom for you in 8/4 carpet warp and you can select from 2-4 colors of rug wool to make an approximately 18" x 30" rug. Your rug is woven in easy plain weave, but you will get great tips on how to beat firmly, change colors, and acheive tidy edges. Bring 2 long flat shuttles or rug shuttles. By Bea Bonanno.

ROSEPATH BABY BLANKET
Rosepath is a lively variation on twill. It is a great design to use for a variety of projects like this baby blanket. You will weave a 26" x 30" blanket in DK weight knitting yarn. Choose from two designs: solid stripes of Dreambaby DK or solid stripes combined with multicolor Baby Blossom DK. We dress the looms for you and class time is for concentrating on weaving.

TWO-SHUTTLE SHADOW WEAVE
This shadow weave looks complicated but it is just a four-harness pattern. Two colors alternate in both the warp and weft to create the shadowed spheres in this design. You will make a 15" x 60" shawl using two colors of rayon. We will dress the looms for you and class time will focus on learning how to read a shadow weave draft and how to handle two shuttles. By Bea Bonanno.
