Wednesday Weave-alongs

$35.00

Join us as we work to weave one of our wonderful kits together.  Each class will include full instructions for the kit (or get a special price when you order the yarn too) and insight into how to weave it up without stress and learn as you go.  Each Wednesday Weave Along will discuss winding the warp, threading the project, special hints for weaving the kit and the all-important finishing techniques involved.  Because we aspire to bring a learning experience to each of our kits, each Wednesday Weave Along is the perfect complement to one of our kits.   With the extra value of a follow-up session to answer questions, address problems and share your wonderful work.  Weave along with us or join for the information.  All of the 2022 Weave Alongs are designed for Rigid Heddle Looms and will be lead by our very own Michele Belson.
