13 years and up are welcome!
This class is for students who have taken a beginning rigid heddle class. You must have knowledge of direct warping and balanced weave and hem stitching. We will use two pick-up sticks to create the table runner in
addition to the heddle and shuttle. The pick-up sticks create a 3rd shed
for texture. Once the table runner is off the loom, you will complete your
project with a lattice woven fringe for a fun finish.
Ewe & I in Chehalis is offering a 10% discount when it’s mentioned the purchase is for an Arbutus class.
The preferred fiber for the table runner is 8/4 cotton which Ewe & I carries or a sport weight or light DK weight yarn in 100% cotton. If you use wool or acrylic, you will not achieve the finish intended though it
will still be wonderful! You can use the same color for the warp & weft or
different colors for each. If you use one color, you will need
approximately 350 yards. If you want two colors, you will need 250 yards
for warp & 100 yards for weft.
Students will provide:
* Yarn - see details above
* tapestry needle
* tape measure
