Joanne Hall Speaking at Telarana Weavers & Spinners Guild

Telarana Weavers and Spinners Guild, in conjunction with Tempe Yarn, is happy to sponsor Joanne Hall speaking on "Finding Your Comfort Zone: Learning About the Looms You Weave On."  This presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be held on January 18th, from 7-9pm at the Mesa Fire Station Community Room at 360 E. 1st Street.

Joanne Hall is a weaver, teacher and author with a Masters Degree in Textile Design from the University of Minnesota.  After teaching at the University of Montana and Cal Poly in California, Joanne started the Elkhorn Mountains Weaving Studio in Montana City, Montana, where she weaves tapestries and teaches weaving classes.  She is the author of "Mexican Tapestry Weaving", Tying up the Countermarch Loom" and "Learning to Warp your Loom".
By understanding how you weave, you can make improvements to the equipment you use.  Joanne states "I want to see weavers comfortable while they weave, enjoying weaving and producing the kinds of craftsmanship that they aspire to make." 

Her presentation will focus on making adjustments to your loom, your posture and your weaving motions.  She will discuss throwing the shuttle, catching the shuttle, making easy movements, choosing a shuttle for the weave and using weaving accessories that make better quality results.
