Introducing a NEW Quarterly Offering—Tapestry Prompts!

I have many great memories over writing prompts with my wordy friends.  Exercises like writing from prompts helps us overcome the problem of the blank page.  An empty loom can be very much like a blank page.  With this new “liberating the creative soul” series, I’ll be taking the idea of a prompt and offering a fun rendition for tapestry weaving.

Below is a “choose your own adventure” array of options, so you can snag which elements would best serve your creativity process.  Each season, I’ll release a new prompt, and I’ll be excited to see what you create!

Tapestry Prompt Design

The main feature of the tapestry prompt is the design.  This will fit well on a piece of paper (8.5 x 11), as a digital download that you can easily print.  Use this as the cartoon for the piece.  Feel free to embellish as desired!  If the piece is a geometric, it will come on a grid with ledger notes. 

Themed Virtual Weave-Along

Looking for community and encouragement while you work on your prompt?  I’ll be offering a more relaxed 6-session Zoom event you can join.  Snag a warping refresher, learn pro tips and pearls for weaving the design, and take on a skill stretch.  These Weave-Along will be held on select Sundays from 10am to noon.

Erindale Palette Yarns

For the prompts, you are more than welcome to raid your stash for weaving yarn, or splurge and go shopping if that gets your creative juices flowing.  For folks who don’t have a rigorous stash (or who just love using the wool yarns from our farm’s sheep), I’ll assemble an assortment of bundled yarns that would work well with the design.  

Extra Frame Loom

Already have a project in-process on your loom but want to jump in on the prompt anyway?  You can snag an additional loom kit.  You don’t have to have a frame loom for the prompts however—if you have another type of loom that you enjoy using that can accommodate an 8.5 x 11 inch project, use it!
