    In preparation for the Handwoven Lace and Overshot weaving workshops in November and December, Karen Donde invites registered participants and other interested weavers to attend a one-day loom prep and warping refresher where she will review tips and techniques for successful warping.

    There are three options:

    -If you have reserved one of Karen’s classroom looms for either workshop, bring a warp wound according to her instructions and warp, with help as needed.

    -If you are bringing your own loom to one of the workshops, but would like help warping, bring your loom and wound warp to get prepared.

    -If your are unable to take Karen’s workshops, but would like a warping refresher, you can either bring a wound warp and your own loom, or get hands-on practice during the warping demos.


    This class is free via coupon with fully paid registration for either workshop. Others pay the posted fee.

    Contact Karen for rental loom availability.

    Instructor: Karen Donde

    Participants will be introduced to three different methods for weaving lacy, open fabrics in this modified round-robin workshop. Huck lace, Swedish lace and Atwater-Bronson Lace are all loom controlled laces with carefully planned floats on a tabby structure. One third of participants will thread each type of lace, and each participant will have a different threading. This is a follow-up to Weaving 1 for novice or intermediate weavers who can warp a loom independently. Day 1 will be spent weaving samples on all looms. On Day 2, participants will design and weave a runner on their own warps. Each student will bring a loom warped according to instructions and drafts provided by instructor prior to workshop. Instructor's studio looms will be available for rental on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact her directly (karendonde@gmail.com) to reserve one and arrange a time to warp it.

    Class Description: A cluster of needle felted holly leaves and bright red wool berries make this large, 3" diameter ornament truly jolly! Add bright ribbons to finish the festive effect, and you have created an heirloom-quality decoration sure to be an eye catcher. You can even add a drop of your favorite essential oils - pine, cinnamon, peppermint, etc. for a lovely fragrance. Learn how to use shapers to create the needle felted leaves, the techniques to get the perfect points and veins on each leaf, and how to produce felted balls for the berries. We'll make that beautiful ribbon embellishment and cord for hanging in the class as well!

    Instructor: Karen Donde

    Overshot is a classic weave, used traditionally for coverlets. This workshop will introduce theory and design, allowing participants to weave samples of several patterns in a modified round-robin format. Then they will design and weave a table runner on their own warps. This is a follow-up to Weaving 1 for novice or intermediate weavers who can warp a loom independently. Each student will bring a loom warped according to instructions and drafts provided by instructor prior to workshop. Instructor's studio looms will be available for rental on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact her directly (karendonde@gmail.com) to reserve one and arrange a time to warp it.
