Three days is almost too short for threading looms, sleying reeds, tying on, and tying up. And designing and weaving a real double binding rag rug. But with this fantastic group of weavers, we did it! It is satisfying to hear a roomful of looms at work. Beaters banging, treadles clacking, and exclamations of “Oh, look at this!,” and “Karen, Help!” The highlights for me are seeing the amazing designs created by each individual, and watching the delight in each weaver’s face as she rolls out her own rug on the floor.
May you make something beautiful and do your own happy dance.

Thoroughly enjoyed the full three days of learning, laughing and camaraderie. Thank you Karen
And I enjoyed YOU, Janet! So glad you were in the class!
Thanks for sharing; good work and fun and satisfaction.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Your web site has been a great motivator. I’ve been weaving for 3 1/2 years and seem to keep doing the same things over and over. I’m inspired to try something new because of your sharing your ups and downs on new projects. Keep up the great site. I’m sure I am not the only one who loves reading it.
