HatNotHate Night

In September we will be sewing on the hatnothate tags to get all of our many hats ready for distribution in early October. Please bring thinner seaming needles- we will supply the yarn and the tags. Come, sit for a while, and do a few hats.
We would also like to invite everyone to a night with Louis Boria on Thursday Sept 19– about 6-8pm. Louis will be doing a short talk for us. If you watched his TED talk on facebook you know we are in for a very moving talk. Joining Louis will be Shira Blumenthal- a principle with Lion Brand Yarns and the strength behind the Hatnothate program.
Please call to sign up just so we have an idea of how many are coming.
Light refreshments will be provided.

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.

Lets Play with Beads
Tuesday & Thursday evenings

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!
