by Joanne Tallarovic
April 29-30 at Raymond Sanchez
A two day workshop on Profile Drafting with Joanne Tallarovic will be held on April 29 and 30. Joanne is a prolific weaver, writer and fabulous teacher. Drafts will be designed on computers using weaving software. Sample looms will also be available to weave some of the generated drafts. The cost of the workshop is $120 plus a materials fee. Participants may use their own computers during the workshop.
The class is limited to 15 students so be sure to register early. A form is on the workshops page.
Weavers Review 2016
Yeah! Weaver's Review 2016 is here. It is Free to members. This is a great opportunity for members of Las Aranas to take advantage of the wonderful weavers in the group.
Weavers’ Review is a set of programs designed to “review” the process of weaving. The programs are NOT beginning weaving classes. We assume you have, at least once, wound a warp, threaded a loom and woven a piece. It may have been two months, two years, or twenty years ago. But you are aware of the basic process to set up a loom to weave. Also, these are demonstrations only, not hands on. They are “Reviews.”
All will be held on Saturdays from 1:00 – 4:00 PM at the home of Ruth Ronan, 7701 Spring Ave NE, Albuquerque, except the last one at Tina Martin’s.
There are only a few caveats:
1) Please call or email Ruth Ronan if you plan to attend so we can plan the set up. (268-0726, firstname.lastname@example.org)
2) You must be a Guild Member to attend (you can join when you come).
3) Attend as many sessions as you can. They will not be tied to one another and missing one will not cause problems. But attending all of them should give you more confidence to warp a loom and weave a project.
