weaving with fabric and a sewing machine

I’ve never really gotten the hang of using a traditional weaving loom.  I always get mixed up with my thread paths, and before I can figure out how to get a rhythm going, I get bored and move on to something else.

I will be teaching the technique at Quilting with Machines, in Ohio this October.  I will be sharing tips, techniques, and enthusiasm– and plenty of samples, samples, samples!  Won’t you join me?  I’d  love to get you all addicted to more fibery ways!! (evil grin!)
