    Thread a sampler pattern

    Weave a twill sampler, which is your first reference work for your new weaving binder or, if you really want to show it off, a wall hanging


    Cost $200.00 payable to ACP. Materials fee for yarns provided, $5 payable to the instructor

    Classes will be held November 14 & 15, 2020, from 10 – 4
