Weaving Instructor - Elyse Anderson

We are happy to announce a weaving instructor from the Atlanta area.ย  She is an accomplished rigid heddle teacher and we're happy to have her hosting classes for LoftyFiber!

From Elyse...

"Iโ€™ve been involved with weaving for about 30 years. Thatโ€™s not to say that Iโ€™ve spent all of those years with my looms and weaving! I owned and operated a retail yarn shop for 11 years (2005-2016). Although, I really wanted to stock and sell weaving yarn, I concentrated on knitting yarns. Now, while I had the shop, rigid heddle looms became popular. And thatโ€™s where I started with weaving again! I have a couple of floor looms, but rigid heddle looms are great for knitting yarns as well as weaving yarns. So..............

I was able to weave and teach rigid heddle with my shop stock of knitting yarns.

Since closing the shop, Iโ€™ve been teaching rigid heddle in-person classes and have decided to expand to online classes this year (2020). The transition to online classes is complete and Iโ€™m looking forward to seeing you all in class.

Classes will include live meetings (via Zoom or Microsoft Team), handouts, pictures and maybe some videos.

See you soon! Elyse"
