W04 Pin Loom Weaving with Angela Tong

Saturday, May 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Howard County Farm Heritage Museum – Shed #2

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. Based off of Angela’s Creative Pin-Loom Designs video on Interweave, in this class you will learn how to warp the loom, do plain weave, weave with 2 colors, weave with sock/fingering weight yarn and finish the squares. Skill level: Beginner. Maximum number of students: 15. Students should bring: An assortment of yarn in different weights – worsted, sport, and fingering; partial balls or skeins are fine. 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.

Class Code: W04 Class Fee: $110. The class fee for this seminar includes admission to the Festival for the day. Materials Fee: $5.

The Maryland Make it With Wool program relies on its sale of Wool Wax Creme at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival to fund their activities. Since the festival was cancelled, they are selling the products by email this year. The post below shows the products available with instructions on how to order.

MIWW is an annual youth-centered sewing and needle work competition designed to promote the beauty and versatility of wool fabrics, yarns, and fibers. Preliminary competitions are held at the state level, culminating in the National Finals and Awards Banquet at the American Sheep Industry annual convention.

Please help keep Maryland youth sewing by ordering your wool wax creme today (plus it's a really great product, too).
