Learn to weave on the go! These small portable looms make it easy to take along anywhere. It’s a great way to use up the odds and ends from your yarn stash.

Scissors and tapestry needle. You may bring in your own 4” pin loom if you have one. 4″ pin looms will be provided for use during the class. Schacht pin looms will be available for purchase from the instructor. Homework: Yarn should be wound into balls before class.
