Saturday, October 8, 10:00 a.m. – Noon

What is Swedish weaving? It’s easy to learn, simple to do and all you need is yarn, a blunt tipped needle, a pattern, and monk’s cloth. You don’t need a loom or quilting frames or long knitting needles – in other words, it’s a great project to take with you anywhere.

There is no fee for this class and all supplies will be provided. The instructor is our local Swedish weaving expert, Monica Vaughan. She will teach you how to use Swedish weaving to create a  beautiful placemat. She will also share many of the other items she has made to inspire you to go on to your next project.

Please register soon as this class is limited to 10 people. Call the library at 913.724.2828 or go online to register from our website
