More Learning Opportunities at Sutherland

I posted recently about an online "webinar" I am giving for Interweave/Weaving Today this coming Thursday at 1pm Eastern. The subject is Spice Up Your Weaving: A Guide to Weaving Design. You may still sign up for that workshop at the Weaving Today site, but since I posted, Interweave has asked me to do a follow up webinar on Jan. 28, called Spice Up Your Weaving 2: Design Theory & Inspiration. The second goes more deeply into design development, while the first is more focused on the technical decision making. I hope you'll attend both--or download the recorded version for viewing later.

We are also thrilled to announce that we have booked Daryl Lancaster for another round of her Wearable Extravaganza workshop, May 12-18, 2014. For this workshop we stow the looms, set up tables and proceed to fit patterns and sew our little hearts out. If you're new to the workshop, you'll make Daryl's signature jacket, learning all about fitting and finishing details along the way. If you've been there before, you are free to bring whatever sewing challenges you're facing.

Last time, we had some students who brought several patterns and spent the week making and fitting muslins. Others brought handwoven garments that never quite fit right, and Daryl helped restyle and refit them. Another brought the unfinished projects from previous Daryl workshops and got them done! Whether you are working with handwoven fabric, some other special fabric, or any fabric and just need some one-on-one help with fitting, this is a great opportunity.

You may choose either the five-day or seven-day option, depending on your needs and schedule. If you only need a few days and have heard the lecture before, we may be able squeeze you in for just the weekend if space permits. Call us to find out.

Cost is $450 for the five-day workshop or $630 for the seven-day, plus a $35 supply fee that includes a wonderful handout. We'll need a deposit of  $225 by April 1 to reserve your space. There's a 10 person maximum and seven-person minimum to run the workshop, so don't delay. Email us for more details and we'll send you the workshop flyer. Or just call us to sign up now if you're ready.

And if you would like to spend a week focusing on some new weaving techniques, Karen is teaching a six-day intensive, April 7-12, 2014, that combines her More Twills & a Taste of Overshot workshop with the Handwoven Lace workshop back-to-back. Sign up for both, or if there's space available, you may take either three-day workshop at that time. Cost is $430 for the week, or $215 for either workshop alone, plus a materials fee based on usage.

Hope to see you at Sutherland soon!

Karen and Barb
