APPLICATION FORM


STUDIO POLICIES

 

Floor Loom Equipment – each floor loom is labeled with a number and all the equipment that goes with that loom is labeled as well. Each loom is equipped with a bench (labeled), a box containing a pair of scissors (for yarn ONLY), a tape measure, a yarn needle, and a threading hook; a box with tie-up cords; extra heddles ( I am the only person who adds and takes heddles off looms); 2 boat shuttles; a mug rug for cups and bottles; phone holder; Schacht looms have a light; Wolf looms have a “trap”. You are responsible for keeping all the equipment with your loom and in order. You are also responsible for keeping equipment/parts of the loom on the loom when you are not using it to prevent warping of the equipment (eg wolf traps, back and front beams when threading, lights). When you complete your project, you will be responsible for removing the BLUE tape from the treadles and I will recheck the equipment to make sure everything is complete and there has been no damage to the loom (water stains, broken/cut cords). Missing/damaged equipment or loom will incur a fine for replacement and repair

The white drawers under the counter contain paper scissors, index cards, tape, bobbins, and other equipment for the looms in the lower level studio.

Small Blue Pillows are available to cushion the benches and stools. Please ask for one if you need it.

Using Own Loom Policy – Due to space constraints, Rigid Heddle Weavers are the only students who will be bringing looms into the studio to thread.

Own Equipment – Students are not permitted to bring scissors, tape measures, threading hooks, etc. from home. The studio is equipped with these items. Rigid Heddle Weavers who are using their own looms must come with all the equipment needed to thread the loom, shuttles and paper.

Studio equipment, threading hooks, tape measures, scissors, etc are to be returned nightly to the white drawers – the equipment does not belong in your basket.

Sewing – Students are welcome to use the sewing machines to finish their projects if they can do so independently. I am

 

available to help thread machines but for further assistance, see me for a list of professional sewers.

Couch - Please use the couch for sitting, (not for baskets, pocketbooks and eating). There is a table in the entrance way for eating/food. Please do not bring food (water and drinks are okay) into the weaving area – thanks. There are felted mug rugs to be used under bottles and cups.

Recycling – there are two recycling bins in the coffee area. One is for CLEAN paper (no coffee cups); the other is for cans, bottles, plastic. Please help the studio be green by recycling items that are recyclable.

Shoe Policy – To protect the floors and keep allergens out of the studio, please remove your shoes (no shoes or foot covering that have been outside) when you enter the studio. You may bring socks, slippers or use slippers and shoe covers provided. Please no bare feet.

Yarn Policy - Projects will be weighed upon completion and students will be charged for weight of yarn used. All yarn will be discounted 20% if all of the loom waste is included in the weighing. If loom waste is not included in the weighing or if you weigh your project outside of the studio, the 20% discount will be forfeited.

Parking – please park in the parking lot or if the lot is full please use the driveway. Please do not park on the street.

Cell Phone Policy – please talk on your cell phone in the front entrance way or on the deck.

Sick/Illness Policy – if you are sick, coughing, sneezing, and/or contagious: Please stay home!

Perfume/Strong scent policy – due to people who are very sensitive/allergic to perfumes and strong scents please refrain from wearing perfume and any products that have a strong scent to the studio.
