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!
