We’ve got some exciting classes in March, don’t miss out, sign up today!

Round Robin

Saturday, March 14

6 different weave structures (double weave, summer and winter, color and weave, satin, fancy twill and overshot) threaded, with 6 experienced weavers manning each loom. This is a great opportunity to try new weave structures without having to thread the loom. OR if you have woven on a rigid heddle and want a chance to try weaving on a floor loom this is your chance!

$100 – includes everything, you leave with 6 samples!

Plethora of Pick Up

Thursday, March 12

Are you ready to explore what you can do next on a rigid heddle loom? This one day class requires that you pre-warp your Cricket loom with 3/2 perle cotton (provided for you at Guild House). Using a pick up stick allows you to create a variety of lace patterns. DeeDee will guide you through a variety of finger manipulated weaves as well. Many of the techniques learn translate well to floor looms.

$80, includes 3/2 perle cotton and a pick up stick

Sign up now so you can get your cotton and thread your loom!
