Don't treadle...Go Rigid Heddle debuts

I have been teaching rigid heddle weaving and decided to step it up a notch and apply to teach at a conference.  So, there's one in 2011 in my backyard, or nearly so, in Gettysburg, PA.  It's only about an hour from home so I thought I'd give it a go.  Too bad I waited until March 2010 to consider applying.  Application deadline was February.  2010!!  That was a surprise.  I sent a letter, was told I could submit in case something didn't work out and bingo, I'm goin to the game.  I'm really excited about this and looking forward to it.

More details to follow as we get closer to July 2011.  If you are considering learning to weave, this is a great way to get started.  There is a fun vibe being at a regional conference.  Especially one that is centered on weaving.  Consider attending MAFA (Mid-Atlantic Fiber Association) July 2011.
