Deadline is fast approaching for the Happy Weaver Workshop!

The deadline for registering for the Happy Weaver Workshop with Terry Martin is next week, January 27! Currently, we do not have enough paid registrations for this workshop to take place. This workshop is such a great opportunity for non-weavers to begin weaving, for lapsed weavers to get back into weaving, or for long time weavers to learn new and different techniques. 

The total fee for the workshop is $125 (there will also be a supplies fee). The workshop fee is not refundable if you register and then drop out, but it will be refunded if the workshop is cancelled should there be too few registrants.

Contact Debbie Scott (, the workshop chairperson, to let her know you are interested or to let her know that you are sending a check. You can also contact Terry Martin (at this address) to ask questions about the workshop.

The following is the workshop information that was posted in November:
The Happy Weaver Workshop – Taught by Terry Martin

Get ready to enjoy your loom.  This workshop is for you if you are a new weaver, it will help you develop good habits from the beginning.  This workshop also is for you if you put the loom aside and keep planning to get back to it but just can’t seem to make yourself.  We will be weaving a project but the focus will be to have a well-prepared loom and to cultivate the ergonomics of weaving.  This results in few broken threads and fewer frustrations.  Plan to get organized, learn good habits, refresh your skills, enhance your understanding of the process from the beginning to the finished project and be a Happy Weaver.
