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.
Beginner Brioche
Monday Oct 14 | 1-3pm with JoAnne
Back by popular demand! Learn to Brioche by Knitting an easy 2 color cowl in a chunky weight yarn. I strongly suggest Chunky Merino Superwash, but Encore Chunky will also work. You will also need a 24-26″ circular size 10.5, and a stitch marker. Please call to sign up.
