From Sheri Gittinger, Cuyahoga Weavers Guild 2018 Workshop chairman:
If you have been considering signing up for the Double Rainbow workshop with Jennifer Moore scheduled for May 24th and 25th, we have only TWO openings left!! No prior experience in double weave is needed, but you will need to bring your 4 or 8 shaft warped loom. More information can be found on the flyer here.
ROC day is celebrated by spinners and weavers as well as other fiber enthusiasts all over the world! It is a gathering of friends with common interests in fibers...a celebration of the New Year, specifically for their art, and a way of paying homage to the past
