In addition to Kasuri Ikat techniques, Beth Ross Johnson, our workshop instructor, taught us Sakiori handweaving with silk kimono scraps and Japanese warping techniques.


Friday night dinner was held at Chuy’s and Tracy served as a gracious host for our potluck dinner on Saturday night—there were plenty of laughs and some great take-away memories too!

A heartfelt thank you to all of our wonderful CHH workshop attendees!
