“Log Cabin” is a quick, fun, and easy technique to learn with stunning results whether you are making gifts, such as a scarf, shawl, or fabric using your 15” Cricket Loom. Log Cabin is woven using light to medium worsted weight yarn, primarily two contrasting colors. For some added fun and texture, you can also explore using a variegated yarn as a third color. Jan can assist in picking out yarn choices at the start of class.
The Schacht Cricket Rigid Heddle Loom is portable, versatile and maybe best of all - EASY! If you are a yarn lover, rigid heddle weaving may be the best thing yet for quickly transforming your stash into beautiful, functional pieces for gift giving, decorating your home and accessorizing your wardrobe.
In this 2 week course Jan will help you get started on a weaving adventure that will expand your skills and tools as a fiber artist.
This class will be taught using only the Cricket loom (available here)
If you have a different brand of rigid heddle loom this is not the class for you.
