OPTION #1: OPEN STUDIO TIME - You will pay for up to four (4) months in advance. For that one tuition payment, you will have the opportunity to use the studio for as many hours as desired during open studio hours. During the 30 plus scheduled open studio hours per week, I will be available to teach and help you as needed. You can use the library, the computer to design your next project, pick my brain, weave, or just visit with your weaving buddies - whatever you desire. Individualized instruction geared to your interests and level (beginner through intermediate) on either eight-shaft, four-shaft, or rigid heddle looms will be available. There will be no need to sign up for any particular time - just show up when it's convenient for you. Loom use is included in tuition cost.

OPTION #2: PAY AS YOU GO - In Option #2 you rent the table loom, paid in advance (floor looms are not available for rental) and pay for just the days you come to the weaving studio. In this option, you will pay that day for the number of hours you attend (2 hour minimum). Please remember your checkbook as no invoicing will be available.

The increased cost of freight (shipping) has forced the studio to revise its discount policy. Yarns and books will be sold at a 20% discount. Looms and weaving accessories will be sold at a 10 - 15% discount.

Special workshops taught by other teachers will occasionally be scheduled (for additional registration fees) to expand your knowledge of weaving theory.

Children's classes are also available.

Effective dates: January 1 - December 31, 2015
