First class at the new studio in Glen Allen

26 03 2007

Well, Sunday was fun. We had a small start for the new class at Glen Allen. One person is weaving double weave. Another is just beginning a rag runner for her bay window, and the third is warping a tapestry loom. We had several folks drop in, and are looking forward to a couple more people joining us in a week or two.
Please let me know if you are interested.

I just wanted to post the pictures of the Learn to Weave in a Weekend class. We only had 4 students. The objective is to weave a mohair shawl in a 12 hour class. Two ladies wanted to go for mohair scarves instead, one wanted to do a merino scarf, and one actually did the mohair shawl. The results were beautiful…..See for yourself.
AS a matter of fact, please leave comments on them.
