agenda, band loom, inkle loom, rigid heddle, warp-faced weave, weft-faced weaves

April 1, 2017 Meeting

There were no April Fool’s jokes with our monthly meeting. We had a great time at the studio. After our business meeting, there was show & tell. It was quite a variety of spinning & weaving. After show & tell, the program began.

Tanya & Debbie continued with their instructional program with weft- & warped-faced weaves on the rigid heddle. We learned about Ghiordes Knots to give that ‘piled’ look on a weave. Then we learned about weaving bands on rigid heddles, inkle looms, and a band loom.
