    STUDIO GOALS

     

    A Place to Weave will provide:

    1. A community environment

       small enough to meet the

       needs of each weaver.

    2. Instruction in theory for

        weavers who desire further

        knowledge and a place for

        practical study.

    3. A place and time for project-

        oriented students to weave.

    4. Access to patterns, equipment

        and supplies to meet the needs

        of project-oriented weavers.

    Late January-Early February 2023  
    Studio NewsLetter 

    There’s a lot going on in the studio this month. Come to A Place to Weave to see what’s in store. You can weave a dishtowel (or two) on a bright rainbow warp and you can learn new techniques from our teachers.

    Start the year on January 29 (Sunday) by developing your Fiberworks skills so that you can design weaves with confidence. Beth will walk you through the basics of this drafting software.

    Our First Friday of the year (February 3) will be your chance to learn how to weave a triangle shawl from Penny LaCroix. In the class, you will make a triangle shawl for a doll, learning all the techniques you need to create one for yourself. 

    Return the next day (February 4) for Mary Mandarino’s workshop on making handwoven chenille for deep-pile rugs.  Mary will teach you all the techniques for weaving a chenille rug as well as guide you in designing your own rug.

    On Sunday (February 12) of the next weekend and then on Sunday February 26, Rachel Benson will teach her twice a month felting classes. You may already have decorated your house with gnomes which Rachel designed or enjoyed her wet-felting projects, so come join her for twice-monthly sessions this winter. If you enjoy these classes and want to develop your needle-felting skills, Rachel will teach a 4-session workshop in April and May, devoted to needle-felting your dog or cat.

    Beth will lead a stash-busting planning session on Sunday, February 26, to complete this month. If you would like to learn how to creatively combine some of the yarns taking up space in your house into a weaving project, plan to show up from 1-4pm to work with Beth. Bring a sample of the yarns which you’d like to use, the yards per pound (if known), and any other information which you can supply—name, brand, fiber content; if you can weigh your yarn at home, that’s great, but you can also bring cones to be weighed when you and Beth design a project.

    There’s more information about these classes and teachers on the website (aplacetoweave.com), so please check there to see photos of projects and biographies. I look forward to seeing you in the studio this month.

     

    Happy Weaving and Felting,

    Beth

    Weave A Dish Towel

    Want to try your hand at weaving or do you want to weave a dishtowel without warping the loom?

    Come weave a dishtowel on a rainbow warp. I have warped two Wolf Pup looms: one with 45 Twills and the other with 85 Twills. Choose one weft color and one weaving pattern or change patterns and colors to produce stripes. You will weave 34" to create a towel approximately 16" X 28" hemmed. Towels will take approximately 6 - 8 hours to weave. You may weave one in a single day or over two weeks.

    The cost is $30.00 per towel,

    including instruction.

    Email the studio to reserve your spot.
