Title: 
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is set circa 1790 in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, New York, in a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow. It tells the story of Ichabod Crane, a lean, lanky, and extremely superstitious schoolmaster from Connecticut, who competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt, the town rowdy, for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, who is supposedly the ghost of a Hessian trooper who had his head shot off by a stray cannonball during "some nameless battle" of the American Revolutionary War, and who "rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head."

Author: 
Henry David Thoreau
Title: 
Civil Disobedience

Thoreau wrote this classic essay to advocate public resistance to the laws and acts of government that he considered unjust. The practical application of Civil Disobedience was largely ignored until the twentieth century when, at different times, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and anti-Vietnam War activists applied Thoreau's principles.

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
