Kitchen towels never go out of style and you can give them away for holiday gifts.
Set up and weave beautiful, one of a kind kitchen towels. There will be several design options to choose from, (Turned Taquéte, Huck, and Twill). Cotton/linen fiber will be used in any color the studio has on hand. If you have specific colors you would like to use, consult Gretchen and she will guide you as to what and where to order the yarn.

Contact Gretchen if you are interested in joining us for a weaving session, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Weaving Studio and Gallery will be open Tuesday thru Saturday, (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) during September. October and November open days are the same.
Weavers of all skill levels are welcome to book a one, two, or three day weaving focus session to work on a particular structure or fiber that has been of interest to the weaver. Four to twelve shaft jack and counter marche loom types are available to use. Wool, cotton, linen, and synthetic fibers are on hand to experiment with. The weaver is supported and mentored during the design, set-up, and weaving processes. For first time visitors a one day fee is $100.00. For following days there is a $50.00 charge, (half days are okay!) 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For weavers who have demonstrated a commitment to weaving and working on a regular basis in the gallery, the fee changes to $100.00 per month for unlimited use of the weaving studio looms and tools. The weaver must provide their own fiber for larger projects. Samples can use studio materials.
On December 14, 2017, I was given the CraftBoston Award of Distinction in Fiber, Decorative by the Society of Arts and Crafts. This is the second year in a row that I have been so honored at CraftBowton!
