It is back to school time so time for weavers to learn more also. This month meeting (see Calendar for date, time & location) Katherine(Kay) Larson will teach us about Double Weave and the Warp Weighted Loom Double weave is a versatile structure and can be used in many different applications from interlocked layers or tubes to making wider fabric. You can continue your learning on Double Weave and coverlets by using the Guild Library. We have 4 books and a DVD for you to checkout during breaks.
