7-7:30 pm is social time. Meeting starts promptly at 7:30 pm. Program: Mini-workshop night! Four concurrent workshops to choose from.
• Cecelia Fritelli will share her nifty, quick one-handed method for tying on a new warp to a dummy warp. When you tie on, you utilize the threading and sleying of the previous project. Once you develop speed and accuracy, tying on can save time, especially with complicated weave structures. It also conserves expensive materials, like silk.
• Sandy Lommen will teach a session on paddle warping. This is a great shortcut for winding most
warps and can be helpful with color and weave structures such as log cabin and shadow weave.
• Connie LaPorto will teach basic Kumihimo, a Japanese braiding technique.
• Tegan Frisino will teach the basics of reading an Overshot Draft. Not all pattern drafts are the same,
especially with overshot. This mini workshop will cover what is included in a modern overshot draft,
and how to interpret vintage overshot patterns for modern use.
Location: Calvary United Methodist Church, 16 Ridge Place, Latham NY.
