April 2018 – Weaving with a loom

This meeting focused on weaving with a loom. Members brought in many different types of loom to discuss and try out. We had inkle looms, tapestry looms,  rigid heddles, table looms, a Saori Piccolo 2 shaft folding floor loom, and a loom set up for tablet weaving, all set up and ready to play with. The for sale table was popular with members and visitors alike, and all the linen yarn there was rescued from the tip!

Show and tell featured a year’s work in the form of a wonderful hand knotted rug, two beautiful Saori pieces, and a sample showing ten different twill patterns all from the same threading.
