Weaving Trunk Show + Demonstration
Friday, June 17 from 6 to 8pm: FREE!
Come see what weaving’s all about! With a rigid heddle loom like Schacht’s Cricket, you can weave scarves, placemats, table runners, and much more – and in less time than it takes to knit or crochet. And you can use the same yarn you’d use for knitting, in fact, weaving is a great stash buster! On Friday night, Liz Gipson will demonstrate how to set-up and use a rigid heddle loom and have the samples from her book, Weaving Made Easy.
Liz Gipson is one of weaving’s top – if not the top – rigid heddle weaving designers and teachers. She has a degree in wool science and has worked in the industry at companies like Schacht Spindle and Interweave. She’s appeared on PBS, The DIY Network, and HGTV. Liz is the author of Weaving Made Easy, which was recently revised and updated. Now working on her own, Liz designs weaving patterns and teaches rigid heddle weaving. We’re very excited to welcome her to Loop and hope you’ll join us for an evening of weaving!
