“Double Weave” is a study group with approximately 30 weavers.  Most of the group describe themselves as intermediate level double weavers, the rest divide between beginners and advanced. Members of the group have looms from 4 – 16 to more shafts.  We are open and welcoming to weavers of all experience levels. All that’s required is enthusiasm!

An important objective is to tackle projects that are of interest to the group and can be studied by all levels of weavers. The group exchanges messages, drafts, descriptions and photographs though a Yahoo Group site. Margaret and Sheila lead discussions to choose projects with guidelines, ideas, and objectives for those projects.

Weavers need to have access to a computer and online services along with weaving software that can produce drafts in a WIF format.  Participants are required to contribute drafts and cloth scans electronically twice a year. Because of the continuous open dialogue between all members of the group we have no formal newsletter.
