Weaving for December: Mock Houndstooth Scarf

If you have ever wondered if weaving is fun or just wondered what it is all about, this is the class for you! No experience required! Love it or leave it!

Nancy Wilson from the Lost Art Fiber Studio will be joining us throughout the year for an introduction and continuation of her weaving technique workshop.

She will be using a Schacht Cricket Loom to learn the basics of Rigid Heddle weaving. In this class you will learn the parts of the loom, how to set up your loom, and how to weave. At the end of the class, you will end up with a handwoven scarf, towel or cowl depending on the month.

This month’s focus is on learning to use a rigid heddle loom to make a Mock Houndstooth. Learn to weave with a rigid heddle loom and maybe make a last-minute holiday gift or something special for yourself. You can choose to make a 10″ wide scarf or a table runner. If you use a sock yarn which is wool and nylon you will make something that will be washable – a great gift for someone that doesn’t always remember the “handwash wool” instructions.

The project will require approximately 170 yds of 2 contrasting yarn colors. For a table runner, you will need a Y4 (worsted) yarn or Y3 (DK) yarn for a scarf.

Classes are held on Sundays from 10-5 pm with new projects monthly
