Keeping It All Straight"

Presenters: Nancy Smothergill and Clara Rose Thomas

Weavers are forever looking for ways to make the warping process and weaving flow more smoothly. We will view and discuss Peggy Osterkamp’s DVD “Warping the Loom - Back to Front.” Peggy is a leading expert on loom-dressing, and this video promises to be an in-depth look at her favorite technique. She has adapted many techniques from weaving mills for handweavers. If you dress your loom front-to-back, this is your opportunity to see how an expert does it the other way.  The rest of the meeting will focus on “Tips and Tricks” for weaving. Members should bring tips that work for them.
