Join the Weaving Adventure

Acton Creative Weave Alongs

An Acton Creative Weave Along is an online, month-long weaving adventure that happens each April and October. The program has just 2 guidelines:

  • We all start and finish a project in that month, and

  • We all use the same pattern.

Weavers of all abilities are encouraged to join in! If you aren’t comfortable creating your own project in the chosen pattern, there will be a kit you can purchase with detailed instructions and accompanying yarn that’s sold separately. 

Every Weave Along has an optional Facebook Group where you can swap stories, ask questions, and share your progress. And while the process of playing with a new pattern is always exciting, the entire experience is a perfect opportunity to bond with other weavers! 

In past Weave Alongs, we’ve explored Hopsack, Twill, Waffle Weave, Herringbone, and Shadow Weave. Here is the Gallery Show from October 2023 so you can see what the participants accomplished –

2024 April Weave Along

The April Weave Along is here! This time around, we are doing projects with undulating twill. We will start and finish an undulating twill project in the month of April. There is no registration required, but we hope you’ll join us in the Facebook Group that opens on March 25. 
If you aren’t quite comfortable creating your own undulating twill project, no worries! There is an official Acton Creative project available for purchase with the instructions and yarn sold separately. Plus, we offer instructions for both a multi-shaft loom (in this case, 4-shaft), and for a rigid heddle loom.
