We’ve just finished a busy week of Refresher Weaving with Nancy Frantz, overlapped by both Chad Hagen’s Beginning Bookmaking with a Textile Twist class and Deb Jones with Dyeing to Knit.
The now-refreshed weavers reacquainted themselves with the workings of the loom, planned and wove projects ranging from towels to scarves to table runners.
Students in the book making class used various textiles while creating four different books in their three-day class, some using their own hand-dyed fabrics. First, though, you have to start with white pages.
The world’s largest skein-winder (?) was used to wind yarn in preparation of dyeing the washable wool into striped and fair isle designs.
Colors and designs are planned and painted…
The yarn dries on the clothesline and is then collected…
Ready to knit!
Taking us into September are Judy Hasheider with her 60-Degree Quilts class and Carol Anderson’s knitters “on location” around the Island. Whatever your location, we hope you feel you’re right here with us!
