Working with masterful weaver, Susy Perrine of Woolwich, ME, participants will create their own little loom from household products and then weave small squares of fabric to fill with Shaker lavender.

Learn simple techniques that you can share with kids, grandkids, students, and friends. Create a small peg loom, use it to weave fabric, and then stitch it into a small sachet pillow. Students learn to will create their own small peg loom by hammering two rows of small finish nails into a wood board and then weave a square of fabric from sport-weight yarn.  We’ll fill our sachets with fragrant Shaker lavender, stitch it all together, and tie it with a satin ribbon.

Participants will supply the following materials:
-YARN-  8 yards – Lambs Pride Bulky is a good choice or other sport weight or bulky yarn in one, two, or three colors
-Satin ribbon ⅛ or ¼” wide, 18″ length

Susan has produced fabrics on all sorts of looms including Jacquard and Dobby looms and creates textiles for clothing, shelter and pure fun. She devised tiny tapestry looms that fit into your pocket for backpack travel and built Woven Twig Garden Structures large enough to enter! She was awarded Yankee & Downeast Magazines Editors’ Choice Awards for her large woven installations.

Max 10 participants.
