There's still time to register for my three-day workshop on collapse weave, March 13-15 at the Weaving and Fiber Arts Center in East Rochester. We'll be weaving samples on our own looms, in a round-robin setup, so that everyone will go home with fabric in number of collapse techniques. Topics will include differential shrinkage and cloqué, deflected double weave, weaving with S and Z twist yarns, weaving with crepe and overtwist yarns, weaving with stainless-steel-blend and other specialty yarns, and using weave structures to achieve a collapse fabric.

You can register on the Weaving Center website, available here.
