Twisted Warp & Skeins
Learn to make rugs, chair pads, table runners, drink coasters and more, using only strips of leftover sheets, shirts, jeans, etc.. This is called toothbrush rugmaking because people used to use an old toothbrush (with the head cut off) as a tool. Toothbrushes used to have a hole in the handle (not like the ones we get now...). You sharpened the head end into a point and used the hole part for the eye. It became sort of a large sewing needle, kinda, sorta.. This technique uses knots to make the fabric. You can make any shape you want!!! You can also use any kind o f yarn, fabric, plastic bags, whatever..... This is a fun class, taught every month by Nancy. You will get enough materials to take a small project in class while you are learning the techniques and will have some leftover to take home, too. Call now to sign up.
