KNOW YOUR WEAVE– HUCK LACE with Melodie Usher
Join us the week before Valentine’s day as we explore Huck lace in the next EVFAC class on types of weaving. Participants will learn what Huck lace is and how to design and weave it in a short lecture. After you learn all about warp spots and weft spots and how to use them to create beautiful lace patterns you will have the opportunity to use a prepared loom to weave a piece of lace to take home. Huck lace is a perfect choice for table linens, curtains and lace fabric.
Materials students should provide: A pencil and a desire to explore and learn something new about twill.
Melodie Usher became a weaver four decades ago when she inherited her Grandmother-In-Law’s loom, a four shaft Bexell Cranbrook loom that was built in the late 1930’s. Her degree is in Interior Design from Purdue University. Weaving has allowed Melodie to use her love of color and design as well as her love of textiles. In September of 2010 Melodie received her Certificate of Excellence in Weaving, Level 1 from the Handweaver’s Guild of America. Melodie lives in northern New Mexico where she teaches weaving and creates woven art in her studio overlooking Abiquiu Lake.
