Are you Ready to Weave?
This is our third year focusing on Weaving in the month of August.
After all, it is HOT!
One of the many joys of weaving is that it does not sit in your lap so it is a cooler fiber art -- perfect for the hottest months of the year.
And, it is fast!!
If you have realized that you are not really all that far from the gift giving season and are starting to panic, take heart! You can weave up towels and scarves in no time!
Since this is our third year we are offering more advanced skills as well as a slew of beginner classes. Deborah Jarchow will be teaching a Color Blending Class!
Remember, we rent looms!
So it is super easy and economical to discover if this fiber art is for you.
Looms rent for only $25 for a week. And, if you decide to buy a loom from us, we will apply up to two weeks' rental fee to the cost of your loom.
Check out August's Calendar for more information on classes!
