Besides all the loom weaving done in our clubroom, members can spin and dye their own threads and yarns, weave and coil baskets, crochet and knit, or exercise their creativity in all kinds of fiber arts.
Through weekly classes and workshops, we teach beginning weavers the basics and continue our members’ education in the many types of weave structures and techniques that have been developed over the centuries. The club has excellent instructors who teach weaving and spinning on equipment provided by the club in a fun-filled, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
We offer presentations from a variety of interesting speakers, hold workshops and enjoy taking field trips to places of interest around our community and state.
Many handwoven, hand-spun and beautifully decorated items are also for sale in our club room at Oakmont.
General membership meetings are held the 3rd Thursday starting at 1pm each month, except in December and May through September whose specially scheduled dates will be announced. Annual dues are only $12 and membership is open to all RCSC cardholders. Please stop by the club room at Oakmont to shop or learn more about our club. It’s a great place to learn new skills while you make new friends and we’d love to have you join us
