Time to add weaving to our list of pages. Learning to weave with a ridgid heddle loom is both satisfying and portable! I have tried many of the RH looms that are available and I have settled on the Schacht Flip Loom. I like the way they are finished and that they use Maple for a very sturdy little loom.
I have several project ideas for weaving classes:
- Weaving a Scarves and Shawls in Plain weave — using COLOR as the creative element.
- Weaving Kitchen Towels — Basket weave using 1 Heddle, plain weave using 2 heddles and possibly Color & Weave — Log Cabin towels
- The wonderful world of textured weaving using multiple heddles and/or pickup sticks.
- Double weave!
Getting started in weaving – Books
can be easily accomplished by learning how to use a Rigid Heddle Loom. A loom, and the purchase of a few books
- Handwoven Home by Liz Gibson
- The Weaver’s Idea Book by Jane Patrick
- Hands On Rigid Heddle Weaving and
- Textures and Patterns for RH Weaving)
