A new spring season is on it’s way and we have new classes springing up to prove it!
We are so excited to be able to offer some new weaving classes at The Knit Café. Our tapestry weaving classes have been so popular and we are really getting into learning all about weaving. We have recently acquired some Rigid Heddle Looms to use for classes. These are compact looms that are easier to learn on then floor looms and are more accessible for new weavers as they are a lot less expensive and can be packed into the closet when not in use. Come see what it’s all about. We have two Rigid Heddle Loom classes on the schedule – The Stripes Class, and The Plaid Class!
