Fiber Study Group–Weaving with Speed and Confidence
February 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm CST
The Fiber Study Group will meet at a member’s home studio to learn Weaving with Speed and Confidence. We will be preparing for the Sheep to Shawl Demonstration and Sheep to Shawl Contest. We will work on weaving efficiently and effectively by practicing on a loom.
We will work on getting your mind, your hands and your feet to all work in rhythm without having to pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time. Once you learn the proper posture for “your loom,” where to actually place your feet on the treadles, how to hold a shuttle and when to beat, your wonky selvedges will straighten themselves out on their own; your weaving will become more enjoyable and more efficient, thereby increasing your speed. Whether you are a beginning weaver or more advanced, I hope you will take away a better understanding of what you can accomplish. Refreshments will be available and there will be a drawing for a door prize. Contact the guild for the exact location information.
