Design your own Tartan
 
Peggy will help you with how to design a tartan -- the meaning of the colors and weight of color used.  You will have a chance to play with color, determine warp and weft, and hopefully get warped in class.  
The class is limited to 6 people. 
August 911:00 am - 5:00 pm
 
Warping Board Demo
 
Warping a loom tends to be the thing that scares newbies the most.  But it is not that hard!  You will learn in the Intro Classes how to warp directly on your loom.  There are times when you want to create a more complex warp and the Warping Board is super handing. 
Peggy is offering a free demo of how to use a warping board.  The class is free but you must register in advance.
The class is limited to 12 people!
August 17Noon - 1:00 pm
 
Weave Tea Towels
 
Warp only once and create towels that coordinate but are not matchy-matchy!  This will be your go to gift -- just warning you now...  
The class is limited to 6 people!
August 1810:00 am - 6:00 pm
 
Pick up Weaving
 
It is time to take your plain weaving to another level.  Learn to use pick up sticks to add lace and fancy stitches to your weaving.  You can create beautiful borders on runners & scarves.
You do not need to be an advanced weaver for this class but you do need to have the basics down.  You will be expected to arrive with your loom already warped.
August 2910:00 am - 2:00 pm
 
Renting & Buying Looms
You will need a loom...
We will stock the Sample It loom by Ashford and will take special orders on the Knitters Looms.  
We chose to carry knitter's looms because they come already assembled, with a carry bag, and they fold for easy transport.  All Ashford looms have smoother edged reeds that work well with knitting yarns.  
For more info visit Ashford's Website
 
You can rent a loom...
If you are not sure yet if you want to buy a loom, we will also have several looms for $25 per week.  Reserve early!
If you decide you love the loom, we will apply the $25 rental fee to your deposit when you order one from us.
