Swatching for Weaving



Have you had an idea, headed to the loom, and then halfway through through your brilliant idea, think, “oh, this isn’t what I had in mind at all.” Swatching allows you to get to that knowledge quicker.

By weaving a small swatch you can see if a given yarn will substitute well for another, if you like your color choices, or if your sett choice is right.

Liz will demonstrate how to create the perfect swatch using the Purl & Loop’s line of swatching looms and show examples of how swatching helped her fail faster and weave better.

There will also be a Trunk Show of some of Liz's work and book signing opportunity at the evening gathering.
