    We don’t have any current plans to come to Washington state.

    Mary, is there a chance you will come to Washington state to teach Navajo weaving?

    hi its august the 29. 2012. I hope someone is reading this website, I need to learn how to weave on a loom. i have thought of teaching myself, i have studied the diagrams of the looms and i feel that i can build one, but i hesitate still because i feel that i need some one to guide me. I am willing to travel to arizona or new mexico to take lessons. I live in california. can someone answer me. margarita

    I use a product called Akismet. but I don’t think that Blogspot has a similar function. The only answer may be to turn on moderation for the comments. If they have the feature, I’d try to turn off comments on any post more than 14 days old. That would cut down on it.

    Hello, been reading your blog for some time. I operate a comparable blog page but I keep receiving a lot of spam responses, how do you maintain your blogging site so clean?

    Do you know of any classes in the North Georgia area (Atlanta)?

    Thank you,

    It doesn’t look like we’ll be doing a class in the east this year.

    Hello Mary, will there be any workshop in Harvard MA later this year?

    Betty, the loom for a double weave is the same as it is for a Wide Ruins design except that you use three pull sheds instead of just one. The warp threads have to be a little closer. There are two books that have instructions on this, Mary Pendleton’s Navajo and Hopi Weaving Techniques and Noel Bennett and Tiana Bighorse’s Designing with the Wool. I am away from my reference books right now, so I can’t give you more information immediately, but I’ll be able to give you more information next week. I have copied other weavers on this reply and they may be able to give you information sooner than I’m able to right now.

    I’m trying to find more information on double weaving – saddle blanket – with little diamonds. I can assemble the loom and done a basic wide ruin design but I’m more interested in the saddle blanket loom. Contact me.

    I am looking for beginning weaving classes in the Los Angeles area – can you help? Thanks, Jill
