Cricket Club Meets Tonight


Tonight will be our first Cricket Club at Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins, between 6:30-8:30. So…bring your loom and any projects you’ve woven for an evening of weaving.

I’ll bring some Cricket Club yarn sett guides and talk a bit about sett–that is, how many warp ends per inch to place in the heddle(kind of like gauge in knitting). I’ll have some samples on hand to help explore the possibilities. Refreshments will be provided, too! Shuttles is located in the Table Mesa Shopping Center in Boulder. See you this evening!
