Weaving produces fabric with a very different feel from knitted pieces. Using the Schacht rigid heddle looms that we carry in the shop, you can make beautiful designs like these after some basic instructions. Interested in giving weaving a try? Susan Mehringer will be hosting a weaving demo on Saturday, June 29 from 10 am to 1 pm where you can give these looms a try. The event is free, but please call 277-1164 or e-mail sales@KnittingEtcIthaca.com to RSVP so we know how many to expect. We will have samples for her upcoming weaving classes on display.
On display in the shop right now is Susan’s work-in-progress. Once finished, Susan will be selling raffle tickets for the scarf to raise money for Hospicare’s Women Swimmin’ event.
