A New Way to Weave

Sure, most of us made potholders as kids and understand the basic concept of weaving: over, under, over, under... And a couple of us even have more advanced weaving skills using big equipment and fancy patterns. But the magic of tri-loom weaving is something completely different.

Our class of six ladies today caught on remarkably quickly, and everyone took home a completed weaving. Barney Terrell's looms are lovely - light and strong - and made the work really fun. Everyone had a different kind of yarn, and it was fascinating to see how each one took on its own personality as it was woven on the loom.

|Karen wove with Madeline Tosh.|
|Sharon worked with a pretty dark rust acrylic.|
|LuAnn, visiting from out of town, knits some, and helps the ladies concentrate.|
|Tri-loom weaving feels like playing a harp...|
|Kathryn adds fringe, and ...|
I'd love to teach more people this very fun technique - please let me know if you'd be interested in a private or small group class on an evening or weekday. I think the group really enjoyed themselves!
