Textile Adventures in Peru with Jennifer Moore – Saturday Seminar Recording
Jennifer Moore presented her 1-hour seminar on Textile Adventures in Peru. You can join in the fun with a recording of her seminar from February 11, 2023. You will have access to the recording for 2-weeks.
A significant aspect of Jennifer Moore’s life is the incredible connection she has with Quechua weavers in the Peruvian highlands. Jennifer became intrigued with pre-Columbian textiles early on as a weaver. The level of doubleweave pickup exhibited by the people in the Peruvian area was so remarkable even in the pre-Columbian days and can be viewed as unsurpassed even to this day.
In 2013, Nilda Callañaupa from the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco planned her conference in Cusco, and asked Jennifer to come teach the pre-Columbian doubleweave techniques to her weavers. Jennifer jumped at the chance. Come and join us as we listen to the amazing stories of the year Jennifer spent preparing for this teaching experience. She spent the year studying backstrap weaving, Peruvian doubleweave and Spanish.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to vicariously visit the weaving villages and archeological sites in the Peruvian highlands through the eyes of a traveling weaver. Jennifer will present a slideshow of her experiences in Peru, as well as show textiles and demonstrate what she taught in Peru. Join us!!!

All the yarn in 6 colors that you will need for Jennifer Moore’s Double Rainbow Class. We have worked with Jennifer to bring you the perfect yarns in just the right amounts to get ready for her class.

No instructions are included in this yarn collection.
The collections are designed specifically to supply the yarn for Jennifer’s class, but you can find the complete instructions for weaving the Double Rainbow sampler in Jennifer Moore’s book Doubleweave:Revised and Expanded.
Double Rainbow On-line Class with Jennifer Moore
We have 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. And the classes will be limited to 25 participants so you will have lots of individual time to ask questions and get to know Jennifer.
The upcoming workshop dates are:
- Workshop 2023 #1: February 6, 9, 13, 16, 2023
- Workshop 2023 #2: Workshop Unavailable
- Workshop 2023 #3: August 17, 19, 22 and 24
- Workshop 2023 #4: November 29, December 2, 4, and 7
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 10-2 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!
