Weaving With Coned Yarns on a Rigid Heddle Loom
If you've taken the WEBS Introduction to Rigid Heddle Flip Loom weaving, or you know how to weave and warp a rigid heddle loom but can't find a challenging project, this class is for you! Weaving With Coned Yarns will open up new crafting possibilities for you, and you'll be able to knit several projects with one cone. Students will make a scarf out of tencel while learning different tips and techniques for warping, tieing on, winding your shuttle, and hemstitching. You'll also have the opportunity to try different coned yarns on the variable dent reed which will be set up for the class. Learn what to make (and what to avoid!) for a successful project.
