Learn to weave on a 36-inch triangle frame loom with continuous thread, and how to finish and join the triangles. Instructors will have a fashion show of scarves, shawls, ruanas and ponchos to give ideas. Learn how to make your own triangle looms in various sizes. No weaving experience is required. The instructors will bring all the tools and other supplies.

Supply Fee is $5.
Instructor:  Crystal Kitchens.
Open to adults and youth ages 14 and up.
Please call Bailey Cove Library to make reservations.

For those who already know how to weave on a triangle loom with continuous thread, you have two additional options:

  1. weave with continuous thread in other weaving patterns, such as twill and leno, and experiment with planning colors for plaids, or
  2. learn to weave with cut threads in the log cabin pattern.

Bring your own triangle looms if you like.  If your loom is larger than the 36-inch looms provided for use in class, you will probably have to finish your work at home. Read more about Triangle Loom Weaving: Beginner and Beyond

The Cat in the Hat is 50!
Come celebrate with us! The much-loved Cat in the Hat is 50, and we'd like to celebrate the birthday by bringing the world of Dr. Seuss to life. We'll have lots of Dr. Seuss games, crafts, and fun at the Youth Services area in the Main Library -- and what are we serving for lunch? Why, green eggs and ham, of course!
This event is free for the entire family. We'd love to see you there, Sam-I-Am! We'll have a Seuss-ational time!
