Weave and Sew a Tote Bag
November 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT
Space Dyeing Workshop
Saturday November 2, 10:00 a.m. at member’s Weaving Studio in Toney. Dye the warp you have prepared earlier. This workshop is optional for weaving the tote. If you have another cellulose warp (not purchased from the guild) that you want to dye, there will be a small charge for the additional dyes that day.
Start at the beginning to Weave and Sew a Tote Bag. Go through all the steps: plan the project, create the warp, space dye the yarn if desired, dress the loom, weave and create your own tote bag. This workshop is for novice and advanced crafters. Knowledge of weaving and sewing is not required. We’ll teach you the basics.
Each person will weave 2-3 yards of cotton cloth which is enough to make 1-2 tote bags depending on your size preference. Make one large bag or 2 smaller ones. These tote bags make great reusable grocery haulers or craft storage bags. Give them as handmade gifts. You have the option of weaving on your own loom (floor, table or rigid heddle) or borrowing a loom for a small fee. See the flyer attached for details. Weave a Tote Bag
