2017–2018 Weaving Workshops
Workshop Day, Organized by Winnie Johnson
Plans are underway for the September 23rd Weaving Workshop Day. Karen Zorn is again hosting the event in the clubhouse at her new community, Las Palmas Grand. We will be weaving rug samples on workshop looms, which of course are not sturdy or large enough for rugs. So essentially, we are weaving placemats or hot pads using rug threadings. Most participants have been given warping and weaving assignments, but there are still several available. Call Winnie if you’d like to participate.
Warp should be 8/4 cotton or 12/6 or 12/9 cotton seine twine or perhaps a heavy crochet cotton or pearl cotton (3/2 or 5/2).
(See Weaving Study Group Workshop for detailed information.)
