Weaving on Small Looms

Saturday, the Piedmont Fiber Guild held a small looms workshop with Susan Morgan Leveille.  there was so much interest in this workshop there was a second class held on Sunday.  We learned so much from Susan.  The pictures tell the story best.

Vivian and Susan getting us started

Susan shared examples of different effects with different weft materials

Choosing our fabrics for our rag mug rugs.

This is the chipboard loom after warping with carpet warp.

Working hard.

Susan demonstrates how to cut the weaving off the loom and tie the fringe.

Our potholders. 

My small woven things.

Vivian gave us a great suggestion for weaving on the go.  An eyeglass case holds the cardboard loom, needle, scissors, yarn, button and warp.  Everything I need to weave a tiny amulet bag.  Headed to Florida Tuesday so it is packed and ready to throw in my purse.
