Upcoming Classes

Warping Lab with Lynn
Tuesday Oct 15 | 3:15 – 6:15pm
Ready to take the next step in your rigid heddle experience? Join us for a “Warping Lab” . You will plan and warp your own project. Weavers must have some experience with direct warping as this is not a “teaching how to warp” class. However, guidance will be available to assist and answer questions. Students will then complete their work at their own pace. Loom rental available for a fee of $10.00.
Class fee: $35.00.
Project materials are additional. Please call to register.
Needlefelting with Lauren

Join Lauren once more for the fun of needle felting. If you have never done this- you are in for a fun time. She has many samples to share- and her new owl is one of her best!

Lets Play with Beads
Tuesday & Thursday evenings
6:30 – 8:30pm with Maggie
Join Maggie to try your first foray into the beading world!
Ironish starts at the tip of the right wing and works across to the tip of the left wing. The right wing has increases to get to the rectangular lace section, and the left wing uses decreases to bring your stitch count back down again.
Ironish plays with texture, an optional beaded edging and two colors of fingering weight yarn. Do we ever have a lot of fingering weight yarns- so your choices will be endless!
Please call to sign up. Other project ideas welcome as well.
