This has been my favorite class to teach for so many years. Table loom weaving is intuitive, playful, and so fast. Where knitting or crocheting a scarf could take up to 20 hours, you can weave one with the same yarn in only 3!

In the class we will warp the looms, start weaving, and hemstitch one end of the scarf. The scarf will take an additional 1.5–3 hours at home to finish. A one-week loom rental is included in the class.

INSTRUCTOR 
Cleo (they/she)

PROJECT
6.5" x 60" scarf with fringe in one or two colors.

PATTERN
pattern and weaving instruction sheet are provided in the class.

SKILL LEVEL
Absolute Beginner

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
How to warp a loom using the direct warping method, weaving in plain weave, weaving with multiple colors in the weft, and hemstitching.

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE
None! You don't need any weaving experience to take this class. Must be 10 years or older.

REQUIRED YARN - available for purchase at the shop
260 yards total of DK or worsted weight yarn. You can use one or two colors of the same yarn, or two different yarns. If you want to use two different yarns you will need 140 yards of strong (won't easily break when pulled) animal fiber yarn for the warp (fringe color), and 120 yards of any strength animal fiber yarn for the weft (main scarf color). Most plant fiber and acrylic yarns are not recommended for this first project as they are less stretchy and forgiving.

REQUIRED TOOLS  - available for purchase at the shop
A 10–20" rigid heddle table loom with a 5 or 8 dent reed, 1–2 shuttles, 3 clamps, warping peg, threading hook, 2 rubber bands, warp paper, scissors, and a darning needle.

All the above required tools are included in our rentable rigid heddle loom kit! Each class sign up includes 1 free week of loom rental. You can also rent our classroom looms beyond that week for $5/day or $30/week.

If you have your own loom you would like to use in the class, please email me a photo of it at hello@cleosyarnshop.com so I can make sure it will work for the class.

Class Policies

Wait Lists

If a class is full we are happy to add you to the wait list in case someone cancels. Send an email with the name of the class (and the date, if there is more than one date for the class) to hello@cleosyarnshop.com to be added.

Cancellations

We are happy to offer you a refund or store credit for any class sign up as long as you give us notice at least 48 hours before the start time of the class.

Most no show and late cancellation ticket costs will added to our Scholarship Fund. You can read more about that below.

Many of our classes have a minimum number of sign ups required to run. If a class doesn't get the required number of sign ups to run and we decide to cancel or post-pone the class we will notify those who did sign up via email between 24–48 hours before the class's start time and offer them a seat in the next class, a refund, or store credit.

Photography

When you attend a class at our shop you agree to be recorded and photographed during the class. If you would like to request that your face, hands, or body not be in any photos or videos that we share on social media please send an email requesting so any time prior to the start time of the class to hello@cleosyarnshop.com. You may still be recorded or photographed during the class but we will respect your request that the videos or images of you not be shared online.

Scholarship Fund

Our Scholarship Fund is contributed to by the shop and our community to help those who need it attend our classes and events.

When signing up for a class or event, anyone is welcome to purchase a Scholarship Fund ticket at a discount as funds allow. When a Scholarship Fund ticket is purchased, the amount discounted is taken from the Scholarship Fund to pay the shop, the shop's staff, and the teacher or host of the class or event the full regular ticket price.

If you are considering purchasing a Scholarship Fund ticket but aren't sure whether it's for you or not, it probably is! The folks who have contributed to the Scholarship Fund wanted to contribute and want the funds to be used! And the lovely people putting on this class or event are still getting paid the full amount to do it. Please only pay full price if you feel you have enough to do so.

We do ask that the amount you use from the Scholarship Fund not exceed $200 per year to allow for the most people to have access to these funds as possible.

If you'd like to use the Scholarship Fund, you can do so by calling the shop (929-529-7542), emailing us (hello@cleosyarnshop.com), or coming into the shop and requesting a Scholarship Ticket. We will ask you how much you are able to pay, and the funds available will cover the rest.

This is a new system for us! We would love to hear your feedback or ideas if you have them.
