Fiber Study Group-Warp a Rigid Heddle Loom

February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CST

Join us at the Fiber Study Group on February 27.  The Fiber Study Group will meet at 6:30 in the Cooper House at Central Presbyterian Church.  The Fiber Study Group is for people of all skill levels.  Everyone is welcome to come when your schedule permits.  All guild members are welcome, whatever your fiber activity.  If you want to work on a project or talk about fiber, join us.  Bring your fiber questions!

Learn to dress a rigid heddle loom using a warping peg, called “direct warping.”  The plan is to make a warp 6” wide and 8’ long.  Bring firm worsted weight yarn, at least 160 yards for the warp and 160 yards for the weft.  Bring your rigid heddle loom in working order with 10 epi or 8 epi reed, and warping peg.  If your loom doesn’t have a stand, bring 2 C-clamps.  There will be a few rigid heddle looms available if you don’t have one and want to learn.  Contact the guild by February 20 to reserve your seat in this workshop, as space will be limited.  Also, reserve a loom by contacting the guild.

Please join the Huntsville Handweavers Facebook group for the latest schedule and location information. In Facebook search for “Huntsville Handweavers”. The Facebook group is closed to the public but anyone can request to join.
