I love to weave. I love all of it, not just throwing the shuttle across the warp. I enjoy the math of project planning, measuring the warp on the mill, threading the heddles, tying the warp to the front apron bar. All of it. And, teaching became a natural outlet for this love affair.
Teaching weaving on rigid heddle looms is fun. The looms are affordable, portable and easier to handle than a floor loom. I enjoy all the variation in the rigid heddle looms you can buy just as I enjoy the variation in floor looms. In fact, I own 2 Kromski Harps, a Glimakra Emilia, and a Schacht 25″. Pretty diverse. I also own 2 floor looms, a Schacht Baby Wolf and a Glimakra Standard. Again, 2 very different looms.
Saturday is the start of another 4 week session of classes. I am as excited as a 5 year old beginning kindergarten. It’s all brand new.
