Over The Rainbow Yarn

Rigid heddle looms are fairly simple, portable, and perfect for both beginners and advanced weavers. The Cricket Loom from Schacht is a popular model, but there are many styles, all of which are characterized by a reed which holds rigid heddles (evenly-spaced bars with holes through which yarn passes). If you want to learn to weave on a budget, join us for our morning class and build a loom out of a cardboard box.

In this class, we’ll cover every step of setting up and weaving on a rigid heddle loom, from start to finish.

In February, we’ve decided to make the Order of the Good Times the theme of the month, so we’ve planned classes in which you can let loose and try something new. The Order of the Good Times was founded in 1606 in Nova Scotia amongst a group of French settlers. The purpose was to get the people through the harsh winter by organizing social gatherings at which food and entertainment would be shared. It would be a morale boost and a reason to get out of the house in the winter time.
