Have you been knitting for a long time and have a sizable amount of stash yarn? Will I ever knit all this? Believe me, you are not alone. Weaving might be the answer for you.
Former ideas of weaving are that it is tedious, complicated and difficult. The Rigid Heddle Loom might be the answer for you. It is simple and fun. It is a much less complicated way of weaving using your knitting yarns (your stash) for all your projects.
- Six hours class for $75

- Bring your stash yarns
Learn how to plan your project, warp and start weaving. Please call or email and we can set something up. I can come to your home.
