This is an introductory workshop to teach you the basics of Peg Loom Weaving to make a Recycled “Rag” Rug / project. You will leave with a finished item of your own choosing and creation! You might opt to weave several hot mats, or chair mats, runner for your bench or table or a small floor mat. The loom is only about 24” wide max, so although you’re not necessarily limited to length, don’t assume you’ll make a large area rug on the looms I’ll be providing! The nice thing about the peg loom is you can stop at any point; you don’t have to fill a predetermined amount of space as with some other weaving looms.
Betty Lou Kline has a long history of family influence regarding various forms of Fiber Arts. She learned sewing, knitting, and crocheting from her mother. However she is a self-taught weaver after seeking the DIY approach to making her own mud room rug. Her father, a woodworker, has also contributed his creative talents by making all but two of her various types of looms.
Betty Lou maintains a Facebook presence known as Created with Fibers, https://www.facebook.com/createdwithfibers where you can find occasional posts about what’s on the loom, or where she’s going to be set up for various shows or events.
