    Circular weaving, also known as circle weaving or round weaving, is similar to regular weaving, but it’s done on a round loom instead of a rectangular loom. One doesn’t have to purchase a specific loom, as you can use any circular object like a large ring, embroidery hoops, and more. When you string the loom, your warp strings look like bicycle spokes, and you weave in and out of these spokes (or warp strings) in a circular direction. The technique is plain weaving. This is a wonderful way to use up your stash yarn. Weaving experience not required- it’s fun for beginners and experienced weavers.  


    Level: Beginning

    Materials Fee:  15 dollars for Various yarns used for weft, tongue blade

    What to bring: 1 ten inch metal ring - can find at hobby lobby, Michael’s, or amazon (circular rings for crafts). You can select any size but for the first time select at least 10-14 inches. Large tapestry needle. You might need several sizes depending on the weaving yarn you will use. If you need to thread yarn, needle threader helps. Warp yarn (amount depends on size of loom- figure at least 80 times the diameter of circle, needs to be strong yarn). Non mercerized cotton is a good choice. Do not use stretchy yarn for the warp! Black or white is always a good color, but it will be your choice. Bring any stash yarn that you love, but Local Cloth will have yarns too to select from Embellishments (like buttons, charms, anything you can thread through yarn) Scissors , Tape measure

    Join us on the evening of the Third Thursday for a demonstration by textile designer and fiber artist Camille Daunno.

    She has worked over 40 years in several areas of fiber art from teaching, designing textile patterns for fabric and wallpaper, to hand painting and designing fabric.

    Camille will be giving a demonstration for two of the classes she will be teaching in the Fall.

    She'll show examples of her resist felted bowls, felted scarves, painted silk pieces with wax resist and combined painting overlays. In the first demonstration, guests will see how she prepares the wool to be felted and show the supplies needed to complete a piece and will have the opportunity to touch and feel her work. 

    In the silk painting demonstration, Camille will also prepare the silk to be painted then waxed and overlayed again using paper cut stencils and designs. She will talk about the dyes and supplies used as well as techniques for creating beautiful hand dyed and designed pieces of silk.

    The Poppet Doll Class: Join me for a playful workshop to make the cutest little spirit doll ever! I'll teach you how to needle-felt the face — even if you've never needle-felted before. I’ll walk you through a straightforward, step-by-step process and you’ll be needle-felting in no time! You’ll make a sweet little face you’ll love. Then, you'll give your doll a body, add some magic, put on her big hair, and get her all dolled up. More than just a doll, these cute and quirky spirits are messengers. And the doll you make will have a message just for you. She’ll be a talisman, a guide. You’ll feel her power.

    Materials provided by instructor:  Wool, felting needles and pads.  Doll patterns and filling for doll,  extra material, scissors and yarn for hair in case it's needed. I'll have hair beads and various items for decorating the doll, including felt to make felt roses and thread and needles. I'll also have some crystals and stones for inside the doll. I have one sewing machine.

    Students should bringStudents will need to bring 1/2 yard of fabric to use for their doll body, matching thread, scissors and yarn for hair. The yarn that works best for hair is thicker yarn (Bernat blanket yarn, chunky homespun or T-shirt yarn is fun. Ribbons or cut fabric can work too). And although beads, baubles, crystals and stones will be available to decorate the doll, students want to bring special items for inside the doll such as small crystals or stones or decorations for the doll itself. There is a small amount of sewing to be done. There will be several sewing machine available, but you can bring your own machine as well.
