We are excited to welcome weaving artist, author, and teacher, Deborah Jarchow to our store.  She will teach 2 workshops here: one on finishing techniques for all weavers, and one on doing double weave on a double heddle rigid heddle loom for intermediate rigid heddle weavers.  These in-depth classes will give you tools to further your weaving experience.  Come join us in our new classroom space for a weekend of learning and expanding your love of weaving.

 

FRINGE AND BEYOND—Finishing Techniques for Woven Fabric

Looking for an alternative to fringe?  Take this class to learn twisting, braiding, adding beads, making decorative knots, and adding knit or crochet edges to your woven fabric.  You will need to bring a pre-warped rigid heddle loom or harness loom to class.  We have a limited number of threaded looms to rent.  By Deborah Jarchow.

DOUBLE HEDDLES AND DOUBLE WEAVE ON THE RIGID HEDDLE LOOM

Expand the possibilities on a rigid heddle loom by using two heddles!  With two heddles of the same dent, you can weave patterns at double the sett of your heddle (16 epi on an 8- dent heddle) as well as two separate layers that can be connected in various ways.  You will learn to set up and thread the loom with two heddles.  During the class, you will weave a sampler that explores patterning of cloth at double the sett of the heddle as well as creating two layers of cloth to make pockets, tubes, or double-width fabric.  You need to be a confident weaver on the rigid heddle loom to take this class.  Please bring a loom with an 8” or wider weaving width that is fully assembled and in good working condition.  It must have two-heddle capability and two rigid heddles of 7.5 or 8 dent.   Materials not included.  By Deborah Jarchow.
