“A GOOD TURN” – Intro to Basic Card/Tablet Weaving with Connie Gray from Hancock, NH
The only “loom” you need for this hands-on workshop is a set of portable cardboard tablets! Bring your own, about 12-24. You can weave colorful patterned straps or bands from smooth strong yarns. Using this ancient twining-type technique you can weave belts, hatbands, trims, bag handles, or even “designer shoelaces”! Possible small fee for handout.
Material list for each participant to bring:
12 -24 cards or tablets (commercial or homemade from playing cards)
4 colors of 3/2 perle cotton (or similar; strong, NOT fuzzy!) about 1 oz. of each
Small stick shuttle
Small scissors
Tape measure
Two 3” C-clamps
Optional: an Inkle loom with open side

Teaching is Connie’s craft and her passion. Having learned many crafts “at her mother’s knee”, she enjoys sharing with others. Her favorite crafts are fiber arts, weaving, and polymer clay. Connie has taught for 30 plus years at Sharon Arts Center in Sharon/Peterborough, NH. She has also taught at NEWS, NH Weavers Guild, Harrisville Designs and locally. Recently she helped set up a Fiber Arts Program at a farm for developmentally disabled adults.
