WE GATHER - WEAVING BEE

On Sunday, September 18, from 12pm-3pm, the WE GATHER studio will host a Weaving Bee, which is a brunch-time installment of our ongoing creative series, Crafts And Laughs. We will host up to 10 people for this event. This is a time when anyone can bring their own frame loom or rigid heddle loom (or any other portable weaving device) and sit with other textile-minded people for an afternoon of weaving, laughing, learning, and chatting. The goal is to strengthen the textile community, make new friends, share weaving tips and wisdom, and enjoy each other's company. Any level of experience is welcome, though each participant should bring their own loom and desired yarns/materials. WE GATHER will offer up portions of our yarn stash for sampling, and we will provide light snacks and beverages.
