Our first two crafter’s weekends were wonderfully successful. This year, we are providing 2 classes: tablet weaving and needle tatting.
Tatting is an old-fashioned craft dating to the early 17th century. This technique is used to handcraft a particularly durable lace from a series of knots and loops. Tatting can be used to make lace edging as well as doilies, collars, accessories such as earrings and necklaces, and other decorative pieces such as Christmas ornaments or bookmarks. The lace is formed by a pattern of rings and chains and can be made with the use of either a shuttle or a needle. Both techniques will be demonstrated with an emphasis on needle tatting.
Class is $40 per person. All materials are included.

These bands have dozens of uses, including dog leashes or collars, belts, straps for bags, suspenders, hat bands, guitar straps, book marks, jewelry, shoelaces, or decoration on clothing. Tablet weaving in inexpensive and portable. It can be done with or without a small loom, and uses cards, or “tablets” to raise and lower the warp threads to create an endless variety of beautiful designs.
In this class you will learn to make a continuous warp, weave several different patterns, read a pattern draft, and design your own patterns.
