Beginning Weaving for Knitters with Deborah Jarchow
Have you wondered if you'd like to try weaving, but feel confused about it and don't know if you'd like it or not? In this class you will see three of the top brands of looms and find out how they work. You will learn about setting up the looms to prepare for weaving, and then you will weave on them.
