Here's a fun way to weave... using fabric strips instead of yarn. Weaving with fabric is fast and easy, a great way to spend a weekend afternoon. And you don't even need to buy a loom!
This is the third course in the series Weaving with Fabric. You'll learn how to warp the loom- using two colors to create stripes.
If you love polka dots and gingham, this one is for you!
I'll show you how to prepare the fabric for weaving...
And we'll explore creative embellishment with beads and buttons.
And just for fun, we'll learn how to put it into a frame, it is a work of art, you know!
I love these frames because you can hang them up, and they can stand upright on your desk... no problem!
You can use any loom for this project, but if you don't have a loom yet be sure to enroll in my free course, Easy DIY Loom.
Once you've got your loom ready, Frame it and Weave it will take you through all the steps to get started weaving.

Why I Love to Teach
Teaching kids or teaching adults, the feeling is the same. I love it when they "get it." Faces light up and they just can't put the loom down, they're having so much fun. I want to help you find your creative happy place, where you go to relax and wind down.
Welcome to the World of Weaving
Weaving can be complicated or simple, and I'm going to give you the simple part. I'll be here to help you with any snafu and make sure you are having the fun you signed up for.
I'm not even sure why I enrolled in my first weaving class, something inside me just wanted to learn. I loved to feel the fabric as I wove it on the loom, and to see if my big idea was really going to come out like I imagined. After that first class, my college courses all revolved around weaving... and teaching.
I studied weaving at Northern Arizona University where I received an MA in Art Education. My work has appeared in Handwoven magazine, and I've sold my handwoven clothing and beaded jewelry at local and national craft shows.
