March Guild Meeting

Exploring the Creative Potential of Little Looms.   

Saturday, March 9, 2019, 10a

Sandhills Library, Maker Space

Small looms provide a great opportunity to enjoy the creative art of weaving without the high cost of purchasing a floor loom. We will have a number of small looms on display and a demonstration of weaving techniques commonly used on lap looms and tapestry looms.  Participants will use these techniques to create a mini tapestry of their own.  


For those who would prefer not to participate in the class please feel free to bring your current project to work
