Sampler Weaving
Weaving Sampler (Gamp) Class
Monday, June 13, 2022

Samplers (gamps) are a great way to learn new stitches or techniques and experiment with different color combinations. We will be using Encore Worsted yarn and pick-up-sticks with 8 dent heddles to create a gamp that can be used as a wall hanging, table adornment, or even a short scarf. Patterns will be provided. Students will need to purchase their Encore Worsted yarn separately ( Purchase at the time of the Class). Participants will need to be able to independently warp their loom.
Note: This is a 5 hour, 1 day class. 
A short lunch break will be provided.

Class cost: $10.00 cash. We suggest bringing some extra $$ to purchase roving from Lauren.

If you don't know how to use knit charts we suggest you learn! Once you do you most likely will not want to go back to reading long sentences of the patterns. But learning to read the written text of repeats is a good idea too.

and repeat texts.
