A rigid heddle loom is an effective way to learn how to weave without spending much money. The equivalent of a 2-harness loom, it will allow you to weave light work, such as placemats, dishtowels, scarves, shawls or fabric for clothing.

Classes & Workshops Currently Offered

The warp beam: This is the roller on which the warp ends are wound for weaving. It is also known as a warp roll. Shaft/Harness: The shaft or harness is the frame of the loom that holds the warp threads. These shafts can be moved up or down by “treadles” to allow the weft to cross through and create the desired pattern.​​​​​​​

Rug hooking today typically uses strips of wool of varying width (1/32 to 1/2 of an inch) that are pulled through a stiff woven backing (burlap, linen, or rug warp) with a tool (rug hook) to form loops.

Dyeing wool yarn can be easy and safe, but dyeing acrylic is less so. For your first dyeing projects, please try natural fibers, instead

Classes are held at my Studio, or at your location with prior arrangement.  I drive a pick-up truck, pull a travel trailer, and can bring it all with me!
