A Winter Weaving Getaway

Saturday, March 9, 2013

10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Lanesville Community Center

8 Vulcan Street, Gloucester, MA

Admission $25

Join us for a day-long weaving retreat in the peaceful seaside village of Lanesville, approximately 30 minutes from Newburyport on scenic Cape Ann.

 Bring a portable loom, any style loom from potholder to multi-harness, set it up, and weave away in the company of friends and fiber folk who understand what it means to slip into your “weaving zone”.

 Take an introductory weaving class from Margaret Russell, using locally sourced, rare breed wool.  Maximum six students.   $150, all materials and weaving tools included.

 Get advice on your particular weaving questions or difficulties from Betsy Martin who will be wearing her coach’s hat for the day.

 Bring your warping board (or rent one of ours) and spend a few hours winding the warp for your next project.

 Or just come sit and weave with us in this lovely space.

 The Lanesville Community Center is completely handicapped accessible, which means moving your loom in and out is easily done.

 Morning coffee and pastry will be provided. Coffee and tea are available throughout the day.

 Bring your lunch. Refrigerator and microwave are available.

 Reservations are required. Tickets may be purchased in advance from A Loom with a View or at the door.

Admission $25  (not required if you’re signed up for Margaret’s weaving class)

 Equipment rental by prior arrangement only.

 No experience necessary. All skill levels welcome.
