This class was originally offered at Stitches Boutique in Minneapolis in August 2023 (in-person class), but with XRX (Stitches’ parent company)’s bankruptcy, it was cancelled.

Many rigid-heddle weavers learn the direct warping method first. It is a great way to get started, but it does have some limitations. Join Yoriko and learn how to warp your rigid-heddle loom using the traditional, indirect warping method, aka front-to-back.
Here are some of the benefits of the traditional method of warping your rigid heddle loom:
– If you have mobility issues, this method, combined with a warping board, is much easier on your body. (You can warp your loom without walking back and forth or even standing up at all!)
– This method expands your creativity. You can create any warp you want.
– It doesn’t require a large space to warp your loom.
– You can create and wind on a very long warp — warp once and weave 3 or 4 scarves!
You don’t need a warping board for the class, although if you have one, please have it ready! If you don’t have one, and aren’t ready to invest in one yet, Yoriko will show you how to make one — without spending a fortune.
Note: Previous weaving experience is helpful, but not required.
