Rigid Heddle weaving is a great way to get started weaving in a simple way. Rigid heddle looms are inexpensive, portable, and quick to warp. You will learn to direct warp a rigid heddle loom with easy to find knitting yarn, learn the basics of weaving, and create a beautiful plain weave scarf of 5 to 7 feet in just 6 hours. Loom kit rental from the teacher is an additional $5, payable at class. The loom rental includes all needed supplies other than your yarn.

No previous weaving experience needed.

Supplies: Two (2) balls of Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn which is available at Joann stores and at http://www.joann.com/lion-brand-tweed-stripes-yarn/zprd_10181832a.html. (More color options are available online than at stores.) Buy two balls of the same colorway.

OR

One (1) ball of James C. Brett Marble Chunky. (You will have enough left over to make another scarf or knit a hat.) Marble Chunky is available locally at Silk Road Textiles and many retailers online.

Bring a lunch and beverages. A refrigerator and microwave are available to use.
