Christina will have a Little Wave loom, Inkle loom, Box loom, and several rigid heddle tape looms available to play on. She will discuss the pros and cons of the various looms and demonstrate direct warping of a rigid heddle loom.
Christina Smith has been interested in band weaving almost as long as she has been spinning yarn. This interest had lain dormant for several years until she took the class on weaving tape on a rigid heddle loom, taught by Yohannah Klingensmith at CHT last May.
We always have a "clothesline" show and tell segment in our meeting! Bring your latest creation and strut your stuff!

2020 - March President's Message
President’s Message Mar. 2020 Newsletter
What are you working towards in your fiber world? Are you going to enter something into Convergence 2020 in Knoxville this summer? The deadlines are approaching! Are you working on interpreting Marian Stubenitsky’s Code structures in our study group? Do you have a gift giving opportunity around the corner that would be extra special with a handmade gift? Or, are you beginning to think about CHT Conference 2021: “A Fiber Runs Through It” Table Runner challenge?
I find these opportunities get me to the loom to begin planning and creating! I’m focusing on creating new art concept pieces for the Complex Weavers 2020 conference and Convergence 2020. I’m busy right now! You don’t need a special event to get to the wheel or loom, whatever motivates you to get creative is all you really need. I DO want to encourage everyone to think about entering some exhibition or display in the next year or two. I can’t wait to see what YOU are working on!
Happy Fiber Trails!
