Warping and Weaving: Two Heddles
Is there some lace weight yarn or a cone or two of fine cotton in your stash that you would love to weave on your rigid heddle loom?  Weaving with two heddles for a finer sett will turn those yarns into beautiful woven projects. Learn to thread two heddles, beam your warp with lease sticks to keep it smooth and neat, tie on, and weave with fine yarn.  Choose your project: either a scarf or table runner, and weave something beautiful!

Tablet (Card) Weaving on an Inkle Loom - 4 Hrs
There are a host of reasons to make beautiful decorative bands (dog collars, purse straps, trim for clothing, just to name a few). One of the easiest ways to create complex bands is Tablet Weaving!  Bands woven using tablets (cards) can be more complex than bands woven on an inkle loom.  However, you can still use your inkle loom as the piece that holds the warp and not be tied to your weaving (literally) by weaving backstrap style.  Bring your Inkle Loom (or rent one from the instructor) and scissors.  I will supply a selection of yarn and the tablets. You will be weaving beautiful bands in no time!
