Take This Class!!!

By Jeweleejonz

Comments about Fabulous Chenille Scarves with Dena Gartenstein Moses:

This is a wonderful course, taught by a weaver whose own work in chenille is stunning, so who better to learn from but the best of the best. Chenille can be intimidating to work with, but Dena helped us through the challenges and we each made two sumptuous and shimmering scarves. Dena is a gifted, passionate, and enthusiatic teacher and weaver who shares of her own knowledge base generously. She makes this class fun, educational, and successful!

Comments about Fabulous Chenille Scarves with Dena Gartenstein Moses:

This is a fantastic course taught by a gifted and passionate weaver. Dena's own work in chenille is the best of the best, so who better to learn from. She took the mystery and the frustration out of working with chenille, and taught us how to make beautiful sumptuous scarves. Dena is an engaging, dynamic, and natural teacher, able to instruct, encourage and inspire. Those who have the good fortune to take this class with her will be glad they did.

Comments about Fabulous Chenille Scarves with Dena Gartenstein Moses:

i tried weaving chenille scarves on my own, but they didn;t turn out very well. after dena's class i found weaving with chenille a breeze. she has a few tricks up her sleeves that makes chenille a joy to work with, including a rather surprising finishing technique.
