  • April 2021

    Hello weaving friends,

    Can you believe it is April already?! The daffodils are coming up and we will be assembling our 20’x30′ classroom tent soon.  We are using this time to continue some needed renovations at our Farmhouse facility, as we still wait for our final licensing in order to let you all know when we can open our doors. One thing we do know is that each day is bringing us closer to that eagerly anticipated moment of welcoming our students to classes.

    Meanwhile, check out our exciting offerings for this month.

    New Rep Warps to Go

    Our new rep rugs, place mats and runners are “Out of this World“!  See the 15 beautiful colorways Becky has created for our Rep planets warps to go.

    Becky adapted this classic design for a rep class many years ago and has woven it in several colors and sizes over the years. Now you too can enjoy the satisfaction of making these stunning rugs, runners and place mats. No need to worry about the math, simply choose a colorway and let us do the rest. Of course, if you’d like to customize these colors a little bit, please request our PDF to make the process easy for both of us.

    Here are 5 of the 15 Rep planet colorways that you will find among our ever-growing Warps to Go options.

    24/2 Dyed Cotton limited supply discount

These are the 8 colors we have remaining with from 3 – to – 10 tubes of each available at press time. Please order online so discount gets automatically applied.

    Weaving Tips Video

    Our beautiful Table Sets Warps to Go are available in 15 colorways or you may choose your own colors to complement your home decor or a special set of plates.

    Weaving plaids takes a bit of know how to get them square  and involves a number of color changes. Becky has added a short video at the bottom of the page for each of the Table sets colorways so you can see how she measures for square and also a simple splice for all those color changes. We hope this inspires you to weave a colorful Table Set of your own.
