WEBS – America’s Yarn Store, Spinning & Weaving Week

October 7 @ 3:00 pm - October 13 @ 5:00 pm

October is filled with fiber-related activities from beginning to end, which makes us very happy at WEBS. We kick off the month with National Spinning & Weaving Week October 7–13. This annual celebration gives us a chance to showcase the beautiful creations being made on looms, wheels and spindles. The week will feature demonstrations and special discounts on weaving and spinning tools, roving, coned yarns, and more.

Each day we will have demonstrations of these time-honored arts in the store from 3–5pm. These demos are free and a great chance to see techniques close up and ask questions of the artisans.  Have you wondered how yarn gets from the fleece of a sheep into the fine threads we work with? Or how someone creates a pattern that becomes a beautiful woven shawl? We will present a great variety of techniques—from drop spindle to wheel, floor loom to rigid heddle and more. Join us and be amazed at how so much beauty is created by tools so simple!
