Have you ever wanted to learn how to weave? Well, it’s time – Linda G. is here to teach you! She uses a Rigid Heddle Loom (one of the best out there is the Cricket, by Schacht, which we just so happen to carry here at Twisted). Learn a new way to use all those wonderful yarns – weaving on a rigid heddle loom is easy, portable, fun, and provides hours of relaxing fiber art time. Let your creativity flow as you design and weave a scarf with worsted weight yarn. Unlimited yarn, color, and pattern variations are possible on this simple loom. No previous weaving experience is necessary; beginners have great success with this first project. Come to Twisted and get hooked on weaving.
Sundays, October 16th and 30th, from 10am – 1pm (note that there are 2 weeks between classes)
Materials: Rigid heddle loom (we sell the Cricket Loom from Schacht at Twisted), any size or brand, 8 or 10-dent heddle; Stick shuttle; warping peg; sley hook or small size crochet hook; Paper grocery bags cut into 4 rectangular pieces; 2 skeins of worsted weight, smooth yarn, any fiber type except mohair or angora to weave into a fringed scarf (can use variegated yarn for one skein.
