Welcome Constance Hall!

WRSW welcomes Constance Hall to Farmpark as she teaches our Fall Rigid Heddle Workshop!  Those signrigid-heddleed up are, I’m sure, looking forward to meeting her and learning all about weaving on the rigid heddle.  She will provide Schacht Cricket 15″ looms for use in class and they will be available for purchase at the end of class at a discount.   Have fun!

6/13/2016 Fall Workshop update – only 4 spaces left!

We’re happy to report that we have 16 eager rigid heddle workshop participants at this point in the year!  If you’ve been thinking about joining in the fun then wait no longer.  Please contact Nancy as to availability.  We’ve posted an invitation to the area guilds (thanks, Sheri!), and Nancy is also making additional connections into the knitting world.  We hope to have another full house this year!  The workshop flyer has been included in the recent guild newsletter, and you may also find it on the workshops tab on the website.
