    • Scott Manor House, Bedford

    Join Daphne Trenaman for a day spent exploring some finger manipulation of the warp and weft on your Rigid Heddle loom to create some pizazz in your weaving. We will be trying some different types of hemstitching – from basic to a couple decorative effects that you can use to finish you handwovens.  We will also look at some variations on different laces, Danish medallions and Brooks Bouquet.  There will be a handout outlining a sampler which you can follow, or you are welcome to jump around to explore the techniques that appeal the most to you. 

    To allow more time for weaving, participants are asked to pre-warp their loom at 10 or 12 epi to a width of approximately 8 inches in a smooth yarn (maybe a 4/8 cotton).  Bring a contrasting yarn of similar weight for the weft.  If you want to bring a couple of fancier yarns or narrow ribbon to explore you are welcome to do so, although these are not necessary.  Also bring one or two shuttles, a tapestry needle, pick-up stick (a paint stirrer will do – best if sanded first) and scissors.  If you are unable to warp your loom ahead of time, bring all the equipment you need for warping as well.

    To ensure there is a handout for each person, participants are asked to contact Daphne (weaver@greenapplecrafts.ca) by Thursday, Jan 23 to register.  Cost is $6 for members and $16 for non-members.  Bring your lunch.  Tea and coffee are provided.
