Hello, everyone! It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? It is shocking how easy it is to fall out of a habit. But, I am back and I’m bringing with me some new goodies!

One of my big goals for 2020 is to produce a weekly video series geared for beginning weavers, and interested fiber lovers. Thus, “A Handwoven Experience” was born!

In this very first episode, I decided to start off with a nice, easy topic – yarn! Specifically, I decided to touch on the various formats of yarn and discuss how a knitter or crocheter is looking for a different type of yarn than a weaver. (We are a very different breed, after all!)

For each video, I want to provide a few juicy nuggets of information laced with a story or two to help folks relate. I want to present them in a way that people feel like they can reach out to ask questions or provide feedback. And mostly, I want to build a community that loves weaving! It is the best!!

So, I present to you, “A Handwoven Experience – Episode 1”! Please enjoy!! (Don’t forget to check out the show notes below.)

Just a few show notes for you! 

Skein – loosely twisted quantity of yarn

Warp – yarns under tension in a loom

Carpet warp or rug warp – sturdy cotton commonly used in weaving rugs
