Early Weavers is presenting a front to back warping workshop will be held on Sunday, February 28, 2016 from 12:00
noon to 4:00 pm at the Okemos Library 4321 Okemos Rd, Okemos. This will be a hands on workshop where participants
will wind a narrow warp and begin the process of dressing the loom. Because of equipment counts, RSVP’s are required.

An informal rigid heddle weaving workshop led by Sara Kanya will will be held on March 22, 2016 from 1:00-5:00 pm at the
Hen House in Charlotte. Please contact Sara Kanya if interested.

Dye Workshop
Louise Giddings will lead a dye workshop where we will produce space dyed yarn to be used in a weaving or knitting project. Participants will choose an option from the list below, depending on their interests. I will supply directions to participants on how to prepare their yarn for dyeing for each option. We will be using protein fibers such as wool, silk, alpaca, etc.
Option 1: Self-striping yarn for socks.
Option 2: Space dyed yarn for a “bubble” scarf.
Please let Sara Kanya know if you are interested and the workshop will be scheduled.
