Spring 2012: Handmade Crafternoon at the NYPL

Join me and Jessica Pigza at the Stephen A. Schwarzman branch of the New York Public Library for Handmade Crafternoon this spring.

March 3, 2012 The NY Guild of Handweavers Members of the New York Guild of Handweavers will demonstrate the basic tenets of handweaving and share some information and inspiration about this textile art. You’ll be able to try your hand at weaving with a little DIY loom and watch other looms in action as well.
