On the weekend of April 26/27, our guild hosted a Double Weave Workshop with Susi Reinink.  We experienced two thoroughly enjoyable days of weaving and exercising our brains! Susi’s workshop definitely whetted our appetite to explore more of all the possibilities of double weave. Thank goodness we have warp leftover to play on.
