Whether you love to weave or would like to try it for the first time, our “Weaving Extravaganza,” might be called the weaver’s candy store. During the month of October, fifteen floor looms will be available, pre-warped and ready to weave in varied and interesting projects, fibers, and colors.
All you do is call us to reserve your date(s), time(s) and project(s); and put half down to reserve your spot(s). The balance and materials fee will be paid when you finish your project. You will then have a beautiful handwoven piece (or pieces) of your own making. Call (254) 300-2436 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
This class is being offered (Monday – Saturday)
Class Hours: All Day, 9-5:30 Half Day, 9-1 or 1:30-5:30
Cost per session: All Day $100; Half Day $50
(This price does not include the materials fee.)
There is sewing, knot tying or fringe twisting required to complete your project after it comes off the loom. You can choose to finish it at home or if you would rather, we can do it for you. Ask us for our price sheet.
The projects are taken off the looms at the end of each week. We will mail them to you between two and four weeks depending on whether you have opted to have us do the finishing work for your project(s). Items will be shipped for a flat fee of $7.00 or if you would like, you can come by and pick them up.
