Weaving Holiday Gifts with Peggy



You will warp your loom for a variety of gift items that will all come from the one warp. Choose your favorite holiday colors to make placemats, table runners, decorator pillows and more. You will have the option of using multiple heddles and/or pick up sticks to vary the weave structure, or use tabby (plain weave).
