After our regular February business meeting and show & tell, Daryl Lancaster will give the first of the weekend's three morning Zoom lectures: "Great Garments from Handwoven Cloth"
Hold onto your seats, this is a whirlwind tour of creating great garments from handwoven cloth. Starting with what to weave, sett choices, sampling and finishing the cloth, we will then move onto making a test garment, and then cover basic sewing techniques for handwoven fabrics.
