Learn Looming at Capitol Hill Library


Learning to use a loom is so easy everyone in the family can do it.

You don’t have to know the difference between warp and weft threads, or how a dobbie is different from a Jacquard head to come to the Capitol Hill Library, 334 S.W. 26th Street, “Family Loom: Mommy and Me” program on Sunday, July 14, from 1:30-5:00 p.m.  The program is free and all you have to bring with you is an interest in weaving.

“There is a fascination in learning how to weave using a loom,” said librarian Jennifer Jones.  “You get the feeling that you have actually created something wonderful out of nothing.”

The emphasis of the program is weaving together as a family activity, and participants will create a bookmark or bracelet as a beginner project.  All supplies are provided but the library asks you to call ahead to pre-register.  The library’s phone number is 634-6308.
