A Good Yarn
524 Monday AM
This seminar looks at fibre characteristics, how preparation for and spinning affects those characteristics, and how the weaver can further modify them during weaving. Having a basic understanding of their materials allows weavers to make appropriate choices in order to fully develop cloth that suits their purposes. The seminar is illustrated with a Power Point presentation and samples of yarns and fabric.
