uncertainty that I'd be able to do this, I signed up for
a beginner's weaving class. Chris met us with a
warm welcome and friendly smile, and immediately put us
at ease with her looms and possible projects. She
was a very patient and encouraging teacher, and even
patched up my "goofs" so they don't show. I
absolutely enjoyed my half day under her guidance." - Sharon

Riggs, 11, shows his first weaving after a day at the
What to expect at a "day-weaving" rug class:
We start with picking the colors of fabric for the rug
you want to make. Then I show you how to “plan” a rug
and we pull the pieces and lay out the design. Next is
putting the material on shuttles and a short “how-to” on
weaving with the material you’ve chosen.
Once you get the hang of the weaving process, I
leave you alone to work, checking on you every 10
minutes or so and advancing the warp when you need it.
When you’ve finished the rug, I show you how to put
in the header thread, add some scrap fabric to hold your
rug in place, and I cut the rug off the loom and tie the
knots for you.
