Weaving is a fascinating craft with so many possibilities. I started by weaving tapestries
on a frame and then moved on to weaving rugs on a four shaft loom
becoming involved with fabric weaving.

provided by this craft as well as learning to how to thread up looms.
It is aimed at those who have done some weaving as well as complete
Twills woven with four shafts
Most of the looms will be threaded up. There are more than
70 four shaft patterns to choose from. Most of the rigid heddle
looms will be set up so that the weft dominates the design,
allowing you to experiment with rug and tapestry weaving methods.
The samples you create can be made up into small bags or used as mats.
You will have the chance to weave on a rigid heddle loom set up for fabric weaving..
