Indirect Warping on a Rigid Heddle Loom with Rebecca Thomas-Maurer

Indirect Warping on a Rigid Heddle Loom with Rebecca Thomas-Maurer

The ease of warping directly onto a rigid heddle loom is fantastic, we love it! But what happens when you have a limited amount of space, or you’ve found a gorgeous hand dyed warp? Learn the basics of calculating, winding, and warping indirectly on your rigid heddle loom. You’ll be able to minimize loom waste with calculations designed specifically for rigid heddle looms. We'll warp our looms for a simple scarf, while also discussing the advantages and creative possibilities of creating warps off the loom

  • Instructor Bio

    Rebecca got started knitting about 13 years ago as a way to keep her out of trouble. The experiment failed miserably as she got into all kinds of trouble with knitting, spinning, weaving, stitching and general yarn hoarding. She can be found in the wild carrying yarn of some kind, working at a local yarn store, or teaching classes in knitting and weaving to unsuspecting prey.
