"Ya Gotta Be Warped to Weave: Warping Back to Front with a Raddle Cross and Raddle"

with Michele Belson

Michele, the co-founder of Lunatic Fringe Yarns and an SCHG member, will demonstrate the how and why for the warping method championed by Jim Ahrens and his student Peggy Osterkamp, with some minor twists and turns the Lunatics have added along the way. This will be an introduction to the concepts of a raddle cross, use of a raddle, positioning the warp, the use of the infamous Webster method for warping alone, plus tips for accurate threading and sleying.

Members will receive Zoom log-in info by email and can also obtain it by checking the Zoom Forum. Non-members who would like to attend should email Virginia Postrel at by Friday, May 7.

In the afternoon, Michele will offer an in-depth workshop on back-to-front warping, which requires separate registration.
