On today’s episode of YarnCraft, Liz & Zontee explore the world of weaving. From weaving on a basic frame or board loom to rigid heddle looms, and even harness and floor looms, there are so many different tools and techniques to discover in the wide world of weaving.
Looms available on LionBrand.com include:
- Martha Stewart Crafts Lion Brand Yarn Knit & Weave Loom Kit
- Cricket Loom from Schacht Spindle Co.
- Flip Loom from Schacht Spindle Co.
- Knitters Loom Combo Set from Ashford Spinning
Zontee also interviews Jane Patrick of Schacht Spindle Co., author of the new book, The Weaver’s Idea Book, on the amazing fabrics and finished projects you can create with weaving. Learn how woven fabric can even be used for felted bags! Click here for Jane’s blog.
Then on Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life, we take a look at some of the fibers that YOU identified as your must-try selections for the fall. From alpaca to mohair, bamboo to angora, we have suggestions for how you can pair these fibers with patterns that work well.
