April at the Farm

Learn to Weave

A group of us met at the farm last Thursday with Mary Ann and Dorothy Hinshaw leading the group on learning how to warp a loom.  We did it once!  And now the loom is in the Tesseract with materials for weaving a table runner.  You are invited to come see our progress and try your hand at weaving a bit.  The group plans to meet twice a month, 2nd and 4th Thursdays. We will go home to home to help dress looms.  Next gathering will be April 12th, 9am – 1pm, Pot Luck.  If you have a portable loom bring it along.  If not, try one of ours
