Hopscotch Runner Instructions

July 1, 2021

These Hopscotch Table Runners are the first runners in our Master Weaver Series.  Designed by Master Weaver, Deb Essen, these runners use 4 colors of Tubular Spectrum™ to make table runners reminiscent of hopscotch pattern and spring flowers in front of Deb’s Grandmother’s house.  The summer and winter pattern has a different look on the front and back. It’s a fun, quick project to warp up and weave.  The complete instructions are included.

Double Rainbow On-line Class with Jennifer Moore

January 9, 2021

We have two new sections of Jennifer Moore’s amazing Double Rainbow class.  Join in the fun of the on-line workshop with Jennifer!  You will be weaving in your home or studio on your own loom, and Jennifer will be meeting with you via Zoom.  It is so 2021!  And the classes will be limited to 20 participants so you will have lots of individual time to ask questions and get to know Jennifer.

The currently scheduled workshop dates are:

  • Workshop #5:  October 26, 28 and November 2, 4, 2021–Full
  • Workshop #6:  November 30, December 2, 8, 10, 2021–Full

Additionally, the 4-days format gives you lots of time to weave your sampler during the workshop, because the class time is spread out over 10 days.  Each of the 4 class will meet from 10-1:30 Mountain Time.  And as you can see from the schedule, you will have time in between the class periods to weave on your loom.  Lots of this year’s participants in Jennifer’s classes have liked the 2 week format of the classes.  That way you have time to do the weaving in between classes, and you can process all the amazing information that Jennifer shares with you in the 4 days of class time.  You might even want to put on a longer warp because you will have more time to weave!
