ASA Wednesday Weavers!

By Ariel Arsac-Ellison

Wednesday Weavers created festive “rag” weaving samples, using bright nylon cording as “warp”, scrap lengths of colorful cloth as “weft” body and yarn as top and bottom “weft” (for finished edges).  They practiced a “plain weave” pattern and learned several weaving terms and techniques they will incorporate in many of the upcoming projects, including “shedding” in which they lifted several strands of warp simultaneously.  What project is next?  Spider web dream catchers!  Spooky!
