Ready to Weave

Have you tried fabric weaving yet?


Fabric weaving for class at Crinklelove

I first attempted fabric weaving last September which resulted in a fun hexagon pillow. Then I tried my hand at a different weaving design for one of the Project Quilting challenges in February. I just love the texture that weaving creates!

Next month, I have a new weaving opportunity - I'll be teaching a fabric weaving class at Crinklelove in Springfield, Missouri!

I am so excited for this new venture! This will be my first time teaching a quilting class! I really love teaching, so I'm stoked to be able to combine my teaching experience with my passion for quilting!

I needed to make a sample for the upcoming weaving class, so this pillow is the result.

The pillow is made with Up Parasol fabrics by Heather Bailey for Free Spirit Fabrics. I just happened to have exactly the right amount in my stash! I'm determined to start using up my stash!

I need to have several different pillows in different stages of completion for the class. Which means I'll have several pillow finishes next month!

I would love for you to join us for the fabric weaving class at Crinklelove on June 10th! Check out all of the current classes on their website here.

  1. Good luck on your first class. Having taught for many years I often type up my class so I have a reference point and don't get lost - or if I don't teach it for awhile it is all there. Wish I were closer, looks like a great class!

  2. Oh, I saw fabric weaving for the first time in Paducah, it looked really cool and the texture was fabulous, I couldn't stop running my hands over the sample. Good luck on your first class! I'd come if it was close to me, I want to learn how to do it.

  8. I've been wanting to try weaving and have my wefty tools! What size of bias strips did you go with? Your projects are gorgeous and you have renewed my interest in trying myself!

  9. This technique is on my wish list but I admit I am a teensy (well a lot) bit nervous about it!
