WEBS – America’s Yarn Store, Classes

October 7, 2022

You Have To Be Warped To Weave

What better time to review or reinforce your warping skills than signing up for a demo of dressing the loom from back to front on October 7! Barbara Elkins, a founder of WEBS, will demonstrate the method used in beginning weaving classes during the 48-year history of the company. This is not a substitute for a basic weaving class, but instead offers a refresher for people who may have had to put weaving aside for a while and are now hoping to get back to it. The demo is limited to eight people. Dressing the loom from back to front has given generations of student weavers the skills necessary to weave trouble-free on well-behaved warps regardless of the yarns used. A printed handout will be provided. There will be opportunities to ask questions. The demo will take approximately two hours.

Masks are not required for in-person classes or in the store.

Note: The safety and comfort of our team and our customers is our top priority and we will consistently monitor and re-evaluate our ability to safely offer In-Person classes based on the guidelines and recommendations issued by the Commonwealth and the City of Northampton.
