    We will start with threaded-in patterns.  These are wonderful multi-colored patterns that appear as if by magic.  Simple turning creates complicated patterns because of the setup.  Then we will move to Sulawesi tablet weaving, named for the Indonesian Isle of the same name.  Bold patterns in three colors require following charts and individual card turning to create the patterns.


    Registration Fee $260 for FTWG members and $295 for all others.
