“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
4 colors of 3/2 perle cotton (or similar; strong, NOT
fuzzy!) about 1 oz. of each
Small stick shuttle
Two 3” C-clamps
Optional: an Inkle loom with open side
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.
If you’re a weaver--beginner or pro--the Vermont Weavers
Guild welcomes you. Plan to join us at one of our regular
meetings at the Kimball House, Randolph, Vermont.
