The April 2022 Weave Along is here! Are you ready for a month-long weaving adventure?

Here are the 2 guidelines for the April 2022 Weave Along –

  1. All participants will start and finish a weaving project in the month of April, and
  2. We’ll all do it using the same pattern – a log cabin pattern!

Piece of cake!

April Weave Along Pattern

One of our 2 guidelines for the month is that we’ll do the same pattern, which is log cabin. The beauty of this classic pattern is that you can do it on any loom – 8-shaft, 4-shaft, or rigid heddle!

The key components of a log cabin are that you use plain weave, and you alternate 2 contrasting colors in the warp and the weft. In order to change the “direction” of the block from vertical to horizontal, you simply change which color is in the lead.

April Weave Along Project

There are no restrictions on what you can do for the April Weave Along. The sky is the limit! Just make sure it is something you can complete in one month. Otherwise, go crazy!!

However, if the prospect of designing a project feels completely overwhelming, no worries! I’ve created a Acton Creative Project that is available to you! My project is a pair of fingertip towels in spring colors – so sweet!

You can purchase the downloadable instructions for $15. They will include all your dimensions/numbers, the pattern with how to weave the project, and details about how to finish it. (Please note: the kit does not include details on how to dress your loom. It is tailored to this project, only.)

Pick up the instructions for the Acton Creative April Weave Along Project right here!

AND, if you’d like to make your life as simple as possible, zip over to Cotton Clouds to order your accompanying set of yarns for this project.

Jodi will fix you up right here!

April Weave Along Gallery Show

Here is our glorious collection of projects from the April 2022 Weave Along! Enjoy. 

The Acton Creative Insiders

So you’re reading all about the April Weave Along and thinking, “Yes, but I would like a little more, please”. Well then, I’ve got your covered! I have a monthly membership called the Acton Creative Insiders. And every member of the Boat Shuttle Tier and above will have access to a FREE copy of the Acton Creative Weave Along Project.

There is always room for you at the Acton Creative Insiders and I’d love for you to join us! Just click here to become part of the membership.


Can I do log cabin on a rigid heddle loom? Yes! Yes, you can. It’s beautiful on a rigid heddle.

What width loom do I need for the Acton Creative Weave Along Project? The project is set at 12″ wide. However, if you want to make it wider or narrower, it is simple to repeat or cut out a few inches to your desired width.

Can I use my own yarn for the Acton Creative Weave Along Project? You absolutely may use your own yarn! It would be beautiful in all sorts of colors and textures. The project is designed for carpet warp or rug warp, but you can easily substitute that with another fiber. To get access to the project plan only, you’re welcome to join the Acton Creative Insiders.

I want to participate, but don’t want to do this pattern. While I would love for you to try the pattern, there is no weaving police monitoring weavers who choose to do your own thing. This is simply meant to give you inspiration and encourage you to get weaving!

What if I get stuck during the project? You have options, my friend! First of all, there is an entire Facebook group of weavers all going through the same thing. So, reach out and ask for some feedback/suggestions/answers. It’s a fabulous and generous group who will run to your rescue, I promise! However, if you want to do things more privately, you are always welcome to reach out to me directly at I LOVE connecting with other weavers and will do my darnedest to help you out of your pickle!

How do I share my progress and the finished project? Please post photos of your progress and the finished project in the Facebook group. I will pull together a parade of projects at the end of the month so we can all ooh and ahh over our weaving brilliance! If you choose not to participate in the Facebook group, you are welcome to share your project with me at

What if there’s already a project on my loom and it won’t be empty in time to participate? First of all, I love that you are working steadily on a weaving project! Yay you! While you may not be in a position to weave along, there is still value in participating in the Facebook Group. You never know what information you might learn or connections you’ll make. We’d love to have you!

Happy Weaving!

I’m so excited to share this weaving adventure with you, during the month of April! My hope is that this experience will spark lots of project and weaving ideas for the future, plus introduce you to a few new weaving friends online! Cheers to you & our month-long weaving adventure! Happy Weaving!!
